Weather of Arabia - As a result of the heavy rains during the past two days, which positively affected the water stock in water harvesting projects in general and in the southern and southeastern regions in particular, as desert ponds and dams in those regions reached their maximum storage capacity.
Hence, the importance of water harvesting projects must be emphasized, which enhance the preservation of the environmental systems adjacent to the water harvesting site and the diversity of crops such as fodder crops and pastoral shrubs, which helps reduce the economic burdens on livestock breeders, enhance water and food security, reduce the risk and effects of floods in the Jordanian Badia regions, and groundwater recharge.
The Jordan Valley Authority has worked during the past years to expand water harvesting projects to meet the challenges related to climate change and its repercussions and effects, and for the purposes of benefiting from the largest amount of rainwater to achieve water balance and bridge the deficit between the required quantities and the available quantities.
