Adaptation

EIB North-South Water Conveyor (Jordan)

The project is a bulk water extraction and conveyor system including a 325 km pipeline, pumping 100 million cubic meters of potable water annually, running south-north in the Kingdom, from Disi-Mudawwara (an aquifer close to the Saudi border) to the Greater Amman area.

The project aims at improving water supply infrastructure in order to address the water scarcity issue, an important natural constraint to Jordan’s economic growth and development. This project also provides for the re-allocation of current supplies to other Governorates, and for the conservation of Highland aquifers that have been depleted due to over-abstraction.
