Jordan

Project

Non-Revenue Water Activity

Jordan loses over 50 percent of its precious water to non-revenue water (NRW). NRW is water loss in the system due to illegal theft, leakage, or inaccurate metering. The NRW activity will support the GOJ to achieve the ambitious targets from the National Water Strategy of reducing NRW by 3 to 6 percent per year. The end goal is an overall reduction of 25 percent nationally by the year 2025.USAID investments in NRW will improve drinking water availability and cost recovery for Jordanian water utilities.

Project

Monitoring and Evaluation Support Project

The purpose of the Monitoring and Evaluation Support Program is to provide technical assistance and advisory services to all USAID/Jordan Development Objective teams and implementing partners in the areas of project monitoring, evaluation, research, organizational learning and knowledge management to enable USAID/Jordan to fulfill its performance and evaluation requirements as mandated by the Agency's policies and guidance.

Project

Middle East Water Security Initiative BAA #3 - Ultra Low Energy Drip Irrigation for MENA Countries

This activity will design and field validate ultra-low pressure drip irrigation systems for the MENA region that will cut pumping energy by 50%, enable drip systems to run on low-pressure municipal water supplies, and facilitate the dissemination of low-cost, solar-powered drip irrigation solutions with up to 40% lower capital costs. The implementer will partner with a private sector partner to mainstream the technology into existing production lines for wider regional dissemination. The target areas are Jordan and Morocco.

Report

Survey Finding of the Mapping Concepts of Water, Energy Conservation and Solid Waste Management in the Jordanian National Curriculum

The Public Action for Water, Energy and Environment Project (PAP) is a public education and behavior change communication program developed to support USAID’s technical and policy investments in the Jordanian water and energy sectors, and to support specific initiatives in the environment, in particular with regard to solid waste. ECODIT implemented the project. As part of the first phase of the project (assessment and Baseline data collection) ECODIT conducted numerous surveys, including 12 or more research efforts, to determine the project's direction and focus for behavioral change.

Project

Management Engineering Services Contract

The National Water Strategy 2016 - 2025 prepared by the Jordan Ministry of Water and Irrigation (MWI) states that Non Revenue Water (NRW) is one of the major issues that impact the water supply availability in Jordan. MWI placed NRW reduction as one of their highest priorities to sustain the water sector in the medium to long-term and maintain adequate resources to meet future demands. Reduction of NRW is also important at the utility level.

Project

Architect and Engineering Services for Water Sector Infrastructure Project

The Architect and Engineering Services for Water Sector Infrastructure in Jordan activity will provide an engineering service team with the technical services to carry out the following: engineering assessments, studies, designs, capacity building, and construction management services in the water and environment sectors.

Project

Water Innovations Technologies

The Water Innovations Technologies (WIT) activity focuses on the conservation of Jordan’s limited water resources through the adoption of proven techniques and the latest available water-saving technologies.

Final Report

Participatory Planning for Improving Water Use Efficiency in River Basins

Due to its geographical location and to the natural features of its climate, the MENA region figures historically among the most water scarce areas of the world and water management issues have always represented significant challenges. However, the region now faces an increasing and alarming water scarcity due to the growing pressure on water resources induced by the economic development and demographic growth.

Report

Utilizing Solar Energy for Water Pumping and Brackish Water Desalination in Agriculture

Increasing demand for agricultural crops has put an increased strain on limited freshwater resources in Jordan and Palestine. The area currently has shortages in freshwater and an abundant supply of saline water which has not been utilized for agriculture due to the economics associated with pumping and desalinization mainly from limited availability to electricity and high running cost of the alternative diesel generators.

Evaluation

Midterm Evaluation – USAID/Jordan Water Management Initiative (WMI)

Jordan is recognized as one of the ten most water deprived countries in the world. Domestic water use in Jordan is among the lowest in the world, and barely meets basic household needs for sanitation, cooking, and cleaning. The influx of Syrian refugees living in host communities and refugee camps is further draining the limited water supply.
