Water supply and sanitation in Jordan is characterized by severe water scarcity, which has been exacerbated by forced immigration as a result of the 1948 Arab Israeli War, the Six-Day War in 1967, the Gulf War of 1990 and the Iraq War of 2003. JOrdan is considered as one of the ten most water scarce countries in the world. HIgh population growth, the depletion of groundwater reserves and the impacts of climate change are likely to aggravate the situation in the future.THe country's major surface water resources, the Jordan River and the Yarmouk River, are shared with Israel and Syria who leave only a small amount for Jordan. GRoundwater resources are overexploited. IT is planned to bridge the gap between demand and supply through increased use on non conventional water resources like desalinated water, including as part of the Red Sea-Dead Sea canal, wastewater reuse and a 320 km long conveyor from the non-renewable Disi aquifer to the capital Amman.
