Dead Sea Reckoning: Water management challenges in Jordan

Water in Jordan's capital Amman is rationed during the dry season.

From May to October homes only get supplies once a week and sometime - one a fortnight. Most of Jordan's water is used in agriculture which annually consumes 65% of the country's water supply, although it contributes only 2.5% of its GDP. The film looks at water management challenges in Jordan and possible ways to address them.

Nature Inc. is a series of programmes putting a price tag on the planet's billion year old life support system. It shows how destroying ecosystem services is costing us cold hard cash.
