Promotion of sustainable water management among Bedouin women in Jordan

06.04.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

Women have an important role in the household management within the Bedouin community of Qatrana (Jordan); however, they have limited opportunity to learn about current issues relevant to best practices in household management.

This project was one of the winners of Karianet Competition (June 2017): Youth Initiatives in Rural Development in the Arab Region, and it aimed at contributing to the conservation of the water resources of Qatrana through adoption of sustainable water management and conservation technologies and create the environment necessary to foster investment in these practices and technologies. It included a survey of the women’s current knowledge of Rain Harvesting (RWH). Women included NGO activists, municipality officers, school teachers, women business owners, and others. This was followed by a workshop with the objective “to contribute to the conservation of the water resources of Qatrana through adoption of sustainable water management and conservation technologies and create the environment necessary to foster investment in these practices and technologies”. The project promoted the implementation of rainwater harvesting and raised the awareness of women in this Bedouin community on RWH. This workshop was followed by an educative activity targeting school children from 8-15 years of age on RWH.  This short term project resulted in the development of a local initiative for RWH by a group of young and enthusiastic women in Qatrana.
