    Very impressive study, thanks to the great efforts of all the participants.
    As said the quality of life is linked to the quality of water, and our major goal is to assure a continuous improvement in environmental performance and global sustainability.
    Humbly would like to add to the recommendations article of the subject study, and propose to establish the Wadi Houran Conservation Authority (WHCA).
    WHCA shall manage natural resources, organize the most effective water sheds management, flooding, drought, degraded water quality, forestation, land use – rural development, green environment and sustainability.
    WHCA will set boundaries, which include the process of managing human activities and natural resources in an area defined by watershed boundaries; that make environmental sense and which facilitate a cross-media, cumulative approach, shift towards a comprehensive, more flexible set of regulatory tools and incentives, best management practices instead of a more traditional command and control approach.
    WHCA strategy shall be based on the following approaches:-
    – shared responsibility with the regulated community, the public and the scientific/technical community, and transparent sharing of information with the public.
    – an integrated, interdisciplinary approach; considers the environment, the economy and communities,
    – a partnership approach to plan and manage,
    – adaptive environmental management that aim for continuous improvement.
    – setting guidelines , lessons learned and best practices.
    – aims to protect and manage natural resources for future generations.
