Public Opinion Assessment

A MENA Case Study

August 2016 | Print | Paper

In the framework of the Water and Security (WaSe) component of the WATER SUM project, a public opinion assessment was undertaken in local communities in Jordan (the municipalities of Al Karak, Jerash, Al-Salt and Ajloun) and Tunisia (the delegations of Sidi Ali Ben Aoun, Bir Mcherga, Nefza and Matmata) in relation to water management, water governance and water security. The questionnaire also gathered information on water development and management projects.

The public opinion assessment is one of the key steps in the creation of local water security action plans, as described in the WATER SUM Local Water Security Action Planning Manual. This document presents the results of public opinion assessments carried out in Jordan and Tunisia.

The WaSe component of the WATER SUM project is implemented by the REC's Local Governance Topic Area with funding from the Government of Sweden.
