To be Updated*
In late 2016, as part of planning activities carried out under the WATER SUM project’s WaSe component, the Regional Environmental Center for Central and Eastern Europe (REC) provided grants to assist the local-level implementation of identified priority activities aimed at improving local water security and sustainable development planning in targeted communities in Jordan and Tunisia.
Following the successful development of local water security action plans (LWSAPs) by local planning teams, and their endorsement by relevant authorities, eight pilot project proposals were approved for the available grants. The total amount available was EUR 360,000 (approx. EUR 45,000 per partner municipality/delegation), with at least 50 percent of total project costs covered through the contribution of in-kind support.Implementation of the successful pilot project proposals began in early 2017 in four municipalities in Jordan (Ajloun, Al-Karak, Al Salt, Jerash) and four delegations in Tunisia (Bir Mcherga, Matmata, Nefza, Sidi Ali Ben Aoun). From January 28, 2018 to february 1, 2018, WATER SUM project team members will visits pilot sites to assess the progress of project implementation.
