The Palestinian Ministry of Finance and the KfW German Development Bank signed a Financing Agreement funded by the European Union to improve the availability and reliability of water supply services in Gaza City and Jabalia.
The project includes the construction of a new concrete reservoir with a capacity of 26,400 cubic meter, new bulk water pipes, general buildings and service facilities for various sites.
The project complements the German Government financed project, “Gaza Central Desalination Plant – Reconfiguration of Water Supply Infrastructure” that received bilateral funding from Germany with an amount of Euro 55,6 million. The EU and German contributions of Euro 64,5 million in total are expected to increase the availability of drinking water and, thereby, improve living conditions for up to one million residents in Northern Gaza.
