Project design down stream - Jordan Watershed
Mira Haddad, Stefan Strohmeier. (15/6/2017). Project design down stream - Jordan Watershed. Beirut, Lebanon: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
Although Jordan is a water-poor country with a harsh climate, it has considerable biodiversity. 80% of Jordan is arid rangeland, or Badia, and faces substantial degradation due to overgrazing and low-beneficial barley agriculture. USFS and ICARDA will establish a pilot-scale project to restore a degraded Jordanian rangeland watershed, both upland and gully area, and to evaluate the restoration impacts on the development of the ecosystem services particularly targeting soil and vegetation.
