Preliminary results of the WaterD2D Pilot Projects 2, 3, and 4:
The following section includes the preliminary results of the WaterD2D Pilot Projects 2, 3, and 4. The following videos offer an overview into the work of our students conducting their master thesis research under the framework of the project. The videos offer the chance to better understand the challenges tackled by each of the Pilot Projects, the followed methodology, and results and its potential applications.
Hydrological assessment of the Wala dam catchment utilizing SWAT
This video represents the preliminary results for Pilot Project (PP) 3. which is focused on collecting missing information and data in the Wala catchment and setting up a Soil & Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model for the Wala dam. The video includes the first round of results from the SWAT model showing the advantage of data exchange to solve complex management problems in the water sector.
Monitoring trust in data sharing between stakeholders involved in hydrological projects in the Wala Catchment.During the preparatory phase of the project, the lack of trust and effective communication between stakeholders was identified as a significant obstacle to attaining water security in Jordan. Hence, one of the main objectives of this research is to monitor “methods and approaches” that enhance trust between the actors, evaluate the approaches used, and identify other methods that the stakeholders might need/prefer. Through the preliminary results of the research, it will be possible to support the implementation of the Pilot Projects focusing on hydrology in the Wala Catchment.
Flood risk modeling in the Mujib BasinThis video represents the preliminary results for Pilot Project (PP) 4. which is focused on Flood Risk Mapping to help decision-makers take measures to reduce the exposure of vulnerable communities, visitors, and infrastructure in the area to climate-induced natural flash flooding hazards.
IWRM poster session:
During the winter semester, students from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) master’s program on Environmental Engineering (M.Sc.) participated in a poster session focused on Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) Application in Jordan. The students presented on themes including Water Governance, Climate Change and Water Harvesting, Water Quality, Agriculture and water, and Innovative Pathways. The following section includes the top-rated posters for each of these themes.
