The Jordan River Rehabilitation Project’s Environmental Flow study is the first of a two part study undertaken by EcoPeace/ Friends of the Earth Middle East (FoEME) to strengthen the knowledge base and enable political decision makers in Israel, Jordan and Palestine to act to rehabilitate the Lower Jordan River (LJR). The Environmental Flows study presented here answers the question – how much and what quality of water is required to rehabilitate the LJR? Complementing this study, FoEME undertook an analysis of the economic opportunities to save or produce fresh water resources from within the water economies of Israel, Jordan and Palestine which could potentially be returned to the Lower Jordan River as part of a river rehabilitation plan.
