The activity aims to support Jordan in enhancing preparedness & response to droughtrelated natural disasters and boost the resilience in the water sector through a series of interrelated activities that include training of the MWI staff and relevant stakeholders on the application of the “Water Evaluation and Planning” (WEAP) system in drought risk management. In order to achieve that, a training on drought monitoring and early warning system is being conducted between the 23rd and 26th July, 2018.
