Bibliographical note

This paper tries to shed some light on the Disi–Amman pipeline project, which is still under study in the current water-policy literature. Our first finding is that Disi plays an important role in the national water discourse even though it is not sustainable and it is not clear for how long it will be exploitable. Second, we argue that Jordan's approach to the Disi is basically to silence the whole issue, and that a “quiet pumping race” between Jordan and Saudi Arabia is currently going on.
