Abstract: IWater resources in Jordan are very inadequate which is why its name is counted among the countries that have the lowest level of water per capita in the world. The demand for water at this time surpasses the available resources of renewable water which have been overexploited in order to eliminate the gap. However, it is also predicted that in all the sectors of water, this gap is potential of widening in the future. To overcome the situation of water scarcity, there is a need for endangering sustainable development thus Jordan is required to adopt a strategy for planning and storing water crucially. The proposed method or approach in this project is focused on managing demand and developing non- conventional resources of water. This paper has provided the strategy of Aquifer storage and recovery for coping with the current water situation in Jordan along with water development and planning components.
