Jordan is one of the most water-scarce countries in the world. Rapid population growth coupled with economic development needs places huge strain on already limited water supplies. The added burden of a large refugee influx has caused water demand to rise more than 20% in just three years. While Jordan is a regional leader in areas of water management including reuse, water quality and level of service, the water sector remains in crisis. Water sector institutions struggle to meet ever-growing demand for sufficient and safe water, and groundwater extraction exceeds sustainable supply.
