YARMOUK FUTURES (2019-2021):
1.1 Background of the Project
|The Yarmouk Futures Programme seeks to facilitate the emergence of law-based, equitable and sustainable transboundary water arrangements, with a focus on the Yarmouk tributary of the Jordan River.|
To do so, the Yarmouk Futures Programme will generate knowledge, build capacity, and develop common understanding of the most pressing issues surrounding water use in and around the basin. This will be accomplished through research projects; technical, legal and negotiations training; and infographics, videos, public lectures, and media pieces. Communications activities will reach the general public to create a much greater awareness of Yarmouk issues as a case study.
The center-piece of the Yarmouk Futures Programme is the establishment of the Centre for Water Diplomacy, at the Jordan University of Science and Technology.
Running from July 2019 until December 2021, the Yarmouk Futures Programme is jointly supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, the Jordan University of Science and Technology, and the University of East Anglia..
The Yarmouk Futures Programme formed part of Blue Peace Middle East initiative’s efforts to support fair and sustainable transboundary water management, with a focus on the Yarmouk tributary of the Jordan River. The programme built on the outcomes of previous research, including the Yarmouk Hydropolitical Baseline Study, to support various research projects and develop a range of communication tools aimed at building broader public awareness of water issues in the shared Yarmouk River Basin.
Yarmouk Futures also laid the groundwork for the establishment of the Water Diplomacy Center (WDC) at Jordan University of Science and Technology in 2019. The centre aims to become a regional hub for training and research in the domain of transboundary water cooperation and diplomacy.
The Yarmouk Futures programme was jointly supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, Jordan University of Science and Technology and the University of East Anglia.
