The project was initiated in April 2007 and continued until March 2012. CSBE engaged in a number of activities that included the development of training courses on water-wise landscaping for the municipal sector, the provision of technical assistance to municipalities in the design of water-wise parks, and the production of a Water Use Efficiency Guide. In addition, CSBE provided technical assistance to both public and private nurseries. In collaboration with Professor Margaret Livingston, CSBE conducted several workshops with Jordanian universities to integrate a water-wise landscaping module in architectural coursework.
