Stakeholder workshops in Amman and Wadi Musa
On Monday, December 11, 2023, the third CapTain Rain stakeholder workshop took place at the Al-Hussein Cultural Center in Amman. Around 30 project partners and Jordanian experts participated in the event. In addition to the presentation and discussion of the latest research results, scenarios for integrated modeling and vulnerability assessment were selected in group work. To evaluate the scenarios, vulnerability indicators were discussed and ranked according to their importance.
Numerous meetings with the Jordanian project partners and field visits took place before and after the workshop. On December 13, 2023, another workshop was held in Wadi Musa at the PDTRA office. The main objective was to jointly select planning goals for the Wadi Musa region and discuss measures that have the potential to decrease flash flood damages. The results of this work will be further elaborated in February 2024 during the planning workshops organized by Hamburg Wasser team of CapTain Rain. The workshops and meetings were a highlight at the end of this successful project year.
