2nd most water-scarce
Jordan is the 2nd most water-scarce country in the world
of the land in Jordan receives enough
rainfall to support agriculture naturally
of the labour force is employed by the agricultural sector in Jordan
The water scarcity has had a detrimental impact on the agricultural sector with most farmers struggling to grow produce and when they do, are required to sell it for an exponential price, impacting the food security of the local communities.
The impact of climate change and covid have meant that many families are looking to expand their businesses, either by purchase of livestock or exploring other business ventures. This is to create another revenue stream to support their families. In a world where climate change is compounding the effects of poverty, we can make a difference by supporting sustainable farming practices and providing loans for women to diversify and create another income stream.
