Successful CapTain Rain stakeholder workshop
by Christina Maus
40 project partners, experts and stakeholders met in Amman
On Monday, 30.01.2023, the second CapTain Rain Stakeholder Workshop was held at the Geneva Hotel in Amman. In addition to the presentation and discussion of the latest research results, a group work was conducted to discuss planning goals for flash flood damage reduction measures in Amman and the early warning chain in Jordan. We thank all participants for their contributions.
Before and after the workshop numerous meetings with the Jordanian project partners, on-site visits, expert interviews and an excursion to Wadi Musa/Petra took place. New data sets from GAM about Amman’s infrastructure and rainfall and temperature data series from the MWI were acquired which will help to improve our model results. A successful start of the new project year.
