Project design middle stream - Jordan Watershed
MetadataShow full item record
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.
