AMMAN — A series of workshops targeting journalists, bloggers and social media reporters from Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey is being organised in Amman by the Swiss Cooperation Office (SCO), a Swiss embassy statement said.

The first of four workshops in Jordan started on Tuesday and will run through Thursday, aiming to raise awareness among local communities and policy makers about water management.“Jordan has recently been declared the 2nd water-scarcest country in the world.

Water and effective water management are thus increasingly becoming important topics in Jordan and the region,” the statement read. The workshops will focus on conflict sensitive journalism, water-related knowledge and journalistic skills.
