Jordan gets EUR 30mn loan for water projects
German development bank KfW supports third phase of programme.
Jordan has secured a EUR 30mn ($40mn) loan from with the German Development Bank (KfW) to finance the third phase of its Water Resources Management Programme.
The phase programme entails improvements to water supply, sanitation and reuse as well as the national water transport system, KfW said in a statement.
KfW Deputy Director Sawsan Aruri estimated approximately 4.1 million people will benefit from the plan as a result of the hygienically secure supply and sustainable management of scarce water resources it aims to ensure, the statement said.
A separate agreement was signed on Thursday to fund the project's accompanying measures.
The EUR 1.5mn grant will be used for measures to ensure acceptance and proper usage of treated wastewater in the northern region of the Jordan Valley.
