Franco Jordanian Forum on Water Sustainability

18-20 November 2014

Amman - Jordan

 

Background Information

Jordan being classified as one of the top water scarce countries in the world, the country is mobilized more than ever to ensure water security and sustainability.

Severe water scarcity, an ageing infrastructure and the recent immigration influx are aggravating factors pushing Jordan to actively implement national plans focused on facing the pressing water challenges.


Over the years, The French government has been actively supporting the kingdom in the water sector through various financing schemes amounting to more than 135 million Euros over the last years. Moreover, French companies, known for their worldwide expertise in the water sector, are also active in the kingdom, the recent signature of a memorandum of understanding  covering five water and sanitation projects in Amman and Irbid at a cost of around 83 million euros is by far the latest acknowledgment .

In this active context of bilateral relations in this vital sector , The Franco Jordanian Business Club (CAFRAJ) in partnership with the French Embassy in Jordan, The Arab Countries Water Utilities Association (ACWUA) and Jordan Investment Commission (JIC) are organizing the First Franco Jordanian Forum on Water Sustainability on 18-19-20 November 2014 in Amman.
