Jordan was selected as one of six country sites where this global project will be implemented; namely Italy, Cyprus, Lebanon, Palestinian Authority and Spain.

The three-year-project, which is implemented by IUCN Regional Office for West Asia (ROWA) and funded by ENEA - Italian National agency for new technologies, Energy and sustainable economic development, aiming at developing an integrated approach that will co-ordinate water cycle management across sectors with the enforcement of a multi-stakeholder partnerships.

2. The project goals and results are known by the target groups, main stakeholders and people of targeted territories. The visibility to the ENPI CBC Med Programme as main co-founder is guaranteed.

3. The "Water-DROP" results are acknowledged at local, regional, national, Mediterranean and ENPI levels. The way forward for the follow up of each project results outputs is tracked and managed.

4. An integrated approach DSS-GIS for the water cycle management is developed.

5. 4 Pilot actions in the 4 countries (monitoring, water treatment, water governance, cost-benefit analysis) are developed to allow, on the basis of local experiences, the adoption of appropriate methodologies and technologies (such as the DSS) for the WCM and the models are extendable at a Mediterranean level.

6. Normative proposals on water management, that could lead the progressive harmonization of the legislation on the issue at the Mediterranean level, based on the methodologies and technologies tested within this project, are promoted in each involved country.

A number of activities and plans are developed in order to achieve these results.
