The US is set to provide Jordan with a US $20 million grant to help communities in the country’ s north to better alleviate water scarcity issues. The region has seen its water supplies put under increased pressure as a result of the influx of refugees from the unrest in Syria, and the funds are expected to support immediate work on potable water networks in the area.

“The US Government is standing behind the people of Jordan to help address community level water needs as a result of a system that is increasingly exacerbated in light of the recent crisis in Syria. These funds will help ensure the availability of the necessary water resources for the people of the northern governorates,” said US ambassador Stuart E. Jones.

H.E. Basem Telfah, Secretary General of Jordan’s Ministry of Water and Irrigation, emphasised “the need for ideal utilisation of all water resources in Jordan, which suffers from a scarcity in water resources. This grant will help us achieve this goal.”
