New projects: Understanding policy needs and regional cooperation opportunities for improving water allocations in the Middle East: The case of Jordan

InSIS Director Steve Rayner and Michael Gilmont have been awarded a Fell Fund grant to further develop research that Michael undertook as part of the project 'Delivering Food and Water Security in a Middle East in Flux' (DeFWS) that wrapped up in March. The goal of this new work is to develop a programme and consortium to enable future research into, and pilot implementation of, agricultural productivity instruments that will allow for a superior allocation of Jordan's scarce water resources in terms of productivity and growth opportunities.
