Priority area Water Promoting sustainable water management
The aim of the German-Jordanian water programme is to make water management more efficient and sustainable. It focuses in particular on the close relationship, or "nexus", between water supply, power supply and food security. Cooperation is concentrated on management of water resources, the treatment and re-use of wastewater, energy efficiency in the water sector, reducing water loss and water pricing.
Thanks to the activities undertaken over recent years, it has been possible to improve the water supply for just under two million people. Amongst those who have benefited are thirty Jordanian communities who are hosting large numbers of Syrian refugees.
