It is an essential element of the policy of GLOWA that its findings should not only be available in academic publications but be formulated in such a way that those who have to take decisions about water management can readily consult them and use them in their decision making.

For that, the project has produced, on one hand, the GLOWA JR Briefings, where relevant scientific results of the project concerning the effects of climate, global and regional change in the Jordan basin are presented. On the other hand, policy relevant indicators with specific results about climate, land use, ecology, agriculture and hydrology were developed which are useful for further work on sustainable water and land management in the region.

Since GLOWA JR is a scientific project, it also has produced bachelor’s, master’s and PhD theses as well as a great deal of scientific publications.
