International Conference 2011
Sustainable Water Management & Global Change – The GLOWA Jordan River Project
The conference took place at Limassol, Cyprus
September 5–7, 2011
Scope of the Conference
The GLOWA Jordan River Project is an international project which uses an interdisciplinary approach to sustainable management of water resources under the impact of climate and global change.
More than one hundred hydrologists, ecologists, sociologists, economists and other scientists from Germany, Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority have been conducting research in the Jordan River basin since the year 2001. The project cooperates closely with stakeholders in the region, such as Water Authorities, Ministries of Agriculture and Development, University departments and NGOs.
The GLOWA Jordan River Project is part of a larger initiative launched in the year 2000 by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) under the title “GLOWA - Global Change and the hydrological cycle”.
After ten years of successful scientific cooperation towards improving the future of the Jordan River Basin under Global Change conditions, the participating teams of researchers and stakeholders of the project came together to present and discuss the project’s results.
