May 29, 2023
The University of Jordan, in cooperation with IRIDRA, the technical partner of NAWAMED, organised a two-day technical training at the University of Jordan.
The training was attended by more than 30 participants with different skills and knowledge, including managers, researchers, engineers, architects from local public institutions, companies, NGOs and water utilities.
At the beginning of the first day, a training on the operation and maintenance of nature-based solutions was given to the staff of the engineering department. The day also included presentations by local experts on water resources and management for urban use in Jordan, in addition to the legal framework for urban use of non-conventional water resources (NCWR).
On the second day of the training, Experts presented Module 3 “Technical Design of Constructed Wetlands (CW) and Living Green Walls (LGW): Main parameters, limitations, models, examples”. Furthermore, the training included a practical session where the participants were divided into four groups to form multidisciplinary teams to give them the opportunity to design NBS technologies. At the end of the training, each working group presented the results of the exercise.
