Abstract

This viewpoint analyzes the Jordanian water strategy to investigate how water scarcity is framed, and what solutions are suggested. It also analyzes how the framings and discourses have changed in the two versions of the strategy, why, and their implications. The Jordanian national water strategy has been overlooked by the literature of hydropolitics.  The analysis here also contributes by showing the interplay between discourses of scarcity and policy solutions. © 2019, © 2019 International Water Resources Association.
