Jordan in $40m water project loan deal with KfW
Amman, July 13, 2014
Jordan has signed a 30 million euros ($40.8 million) loan deal with the German Development Bank (KfW) recently for the Water Resources Management Programme in its third phase, said a report.
The third phase of the programme includes improvements to water supply, sanitation and reuse, as well as the national water transport system, said the Jordan Times report.
More than 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, Sawsan Aruri, deputy director, was quoted as saying.
The kingdom has also signed a 1.5 million euros deal to fund the project’s accompanying measures, said the report.
The grant will be used for measures to ensure acceptance and proper usage of treated wastewater in the northern region of the Jordan Valley, it added.
