The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region is facing chronic water scarcity, which is very severe in some countries such as Jordan and Yemen. INWRDAM had been involved since February 2000 in greywater research activities in Jordan, Lebanon and Yemen. Houses in rural areas in the MENA region are usually simple and this makes it possible to separate greywater from black water with minimal modification of sewer pipes inside the house. In 2000 INWRDAM conducted a comprehensive evaluation of the potential for greywater reuse in rural areas of Jordan.

In semi-arid regions, rainfalls occur not very often but can be extremely intensive. Water which is needed for agricultural production and natural resources can have very destroyable effects. This increases with the effects of climate change. The flooding of water has to be controlled and put into a productive destination. Water spreading weirs are infrastructural measures which contribute to agriculture production and food security in marginalized regions of semi-arid regions.
