The Center for Water Diplomacy was inaugurated as the latest university center, which was established at the end of 2019 and approved in 2020 as part of the Yarmouk Future Project and with the support of the Swiss Agency for Development, especially since the water sector is one of the most important sectors that play a major role in the sustainable economic growth of any country.
Water and the environment represent one of the biggest challenges facing global and local communities.ِAs we know, water is a vital component for growth, prosperity, and civilization, so it is not surprising that the transboundary basins host more than half of the world's population, with countries sharing about 310 rivers and lakes and 592 surfaces of groundwater.
The Middle East and North Africa region are one of the most water-scarce regions in the world, where the water demand exceeds the natural amount of available water by about 20 percent due to population growth and the deterioration of the impact of climate change on water resources. With this contrast, it may increase significantly if it is not treated appropriately.
