We would like to join as an organization partner of a consortium working to alleviate water scarcity and promote water management and sustainability in arid and semi-arid Mediterranean areas.
Topic 1.1.1 (RIA) Sustainable soil and water management for combating land degradation and desertification and promoting ecosystem restoration Topic 2.1.1 (RIA) Alleviating Mediterranean water scarcity through adaptive water governance
Topic 1.4.1 (IA) Leveraging knowledge on the Nexus management of Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystems resources in the Mediterranean region: from concepts to practical solutions
Charging Groundwater, Water reuse, Leaking of Water Networks, Drought and Desertification, Excessive use of Fertilizers in Agriculture, Over use and exploitation of water, Climate change, Water scarcity, Water management, Water sustainability, Internet of Things (IoT), Sensors, Smart devices, Smart water systems, Smart irrigation
We believe that implementing modern technologies and Internet of things (IoT) (smart devices and sensors) can develop smart water systems and make smart water management. Accordingly, water resources, use, wastage, collecting, quality, distribution, pollution, etc. can be controlled and managed in efficient way and in real time. Also, smart irrigation systems can be implemented to improve the irrigation process. All of the above would help in mitigating water scarcity by enhancing water abundant and reducing water waste.
Actually, Jordan is considered one of the first water poorest country in the world and suffers from a severe water scarcity problem. This prompted me to address this problem as a part of my PhD research. Thus, the PhD case study funded by Lincoln University in New Zealand was "Mitigating the Water Scarcity Problem in Jordan" and conducted at the site (Jordan). It lasted 6 months. Data was collected about most of water issues in Jordan from different relevant stakeholders. The data was analyzed and simulated using novel cognitive model. Helpful recommendations for decision makers have been suggested to mitigate water scarcity.

Additionally, I have good experience with European projects. I have participated in many Tempus and Erasmus + projects, either as a member or manager of the Hashemite University team.
Moreover, there is a well-experienced team in the Department of Water and Environmental Management, Department of Land and Environment Management and the Faculty of Dry Lands.
The Hashemite University (HU) is very interested in such projects. We, as a cooperating team representing HU, look forward to being part of your consortium project.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
Hashemite University was established in 1995 as a public university. It is categorized as one of major Universities in the fields of education, scientific research and community services. Hashemite University is one of the leading universities that participated in many capacity building, higher education and smart educational programs. It consists 3 Deanships and 14 Faculties. It offers various academic programs such as masters and doctorate alongside undergraduate programs.
The faculty of Information technology (IT) at HU delivers high quality education, innovative research, creativity and entrepreneurship opportunities, and professional partnership locally and globally. IT is engaged with academic and practice-oriented research that focuses on applying theory to the real world.
The department of the Water and Environment Management at HU was established as a result of the increasing demand for professionals who are able to deal with water and environmental issues.
The department of the Land Management and Environment at HU was developed to focus on soil - plant - atmosphere systems, with emphasis on physical, chemical, microbiological processes in soils, land use/cover, land management and biodiversity.
The Faculty for Arid Lands at HU was established to transfer knowledge from scientists from countries around the world about the sustainable development of dry lands, and to generate a pioneering approach in solving the problems of over-use and misuse of natural resources in arid lands through the involvement of local communities, which will involve them in decision-making and open new job opportunities.
Recently, the Hashemite University has started harvesting water from the air humidity using the solar energy system.
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
