In a feasibility study project conducted for the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Investment Bank (EIB), the project team created a roadmap for potential services utilising multiple space assets. The roadmap’s aim is to improve water management services in Jordan. Polish experts specialising in the Middle East participated to the project.
Jordan is a country that deals with a lot of problems in water access. The aim of this study was the identification of opportunities to operationally improve the water and sewage infrastructure as well as services related to water management in this country.
The proposed solutions used at least two different satellite data sources, such as Earth Observation and GNSS. The project will also provide a risk analysis and roadmap to introduce the new services on the local market.
Study results provided a baseline for an own integrated application, which is being developed within the WADI (Water Disposal Monitoring) project.
