How Jordan combats water shortage
- Jul 2, 2018
Jordan is one of the most water scarce countries in the world. As the country is struggling with an influx of Syrian refugees, extra pressure is put on Jordan’s water supplies and sanitation by this sudden increase in population. The EIB’s loan of USD 54 million to the Wadi Al-Arab Water System II helps to treat and move 30 million cubic metres of fresh water every year, improving drinking water availability for the growing population in Jordan.
