The relevance of johnston plan to the reality of 1993 and beyond

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Out of sixteen plans proposed for the utilization of the Jordan-Yarmuk sources, the Johnson plan (1955) is considered as the defacto accepted for the division of the water. The article analyses the relevance of this plan to the reality of the 90s. Thirty six years have passed since the Johnson plan was proposed, and many changes have taken place in the countries of the Jordan basin since then. Water needs only become worse, and therefore all the countries cannot compromise in one direction or another on the little water. The only solution lies in water desalination.
