Abstract

This documentary discusses the global water crisis, water scarcity in Jordan and desert encroachment in the absence of rain. It also talks about dams and projects initiated by the government to protect water resources, such as "the dam of the union", and the awareness program to reduce wastage of water . Water is a supporting member of industrial and agricultural sectors. Jordan is one of the poorest countries concerning water, hence the interest of providing water for drinking and irrigation, in launching the project Deeseh which withdraws water from the Deeseh, south the country, to supply the city of Amman. One problem is the high cost of the project,and the low level of the Dead Sea due to lack of rainfall, evaporation and the intensive exploitation of its waters. An alternative exists, however, with the proposed transfer of water from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea to be completed in 2013.
