The EU funded “Water and Environment Support (WES) in the ENI Neighbourhood South Region” project in cooperation with the Ministry of Water and Irrigation of Jordan organised a WES National Meeting on the 23rd of May 2024 in Amman, to present an overview of WES Activities implemented in Jordan and discuss the way forward.


Since October 2020, more than 230 key Jordanian stakeholders have gained valuable knowledge and experience by actively participating in 4 National Activities (2 for the environment and 2 for the water sector), 12 Regional and 5 Horizontal WES Activities


The event was honored by H.E. Mr. Jihad Mahameed, Secretary General of the Ministry of Water and Irrigation, who in his opening speech, underlined the fact that WES has assisted the Ministry of Water and Irrigation in the elaboration of non-Revenue Water (NRW) policy: “A policy that clearly defines rules for the development and implementation of NRW, reduction and control, goals that are consistent with the proposition of Jordan’s national strategy for NRW. In fact, both national WES water activities were designed to be aligned with national strategies addressing critical issues.”
