Jordan is one of the most water‐scarce countries in the world. Delivering sufficient water and wastewater services to meet the needs of a growing population and national economic development targets is a significant challenge. Clearly, determining how to allocate water efficiently and equitably demands detailed information on the country’s water resources and water use. This challenge has been met with the establishment of a detailed metering system; and by a thorough accounting system, which relates physical water flows to the economy and enables an environmentally extended input-output analysis. Those two elements have been joined and made operable within a extensive Water Information System (WIS).
