The EU-funded “Water and Environment Support (WES) in the ENI Southern Neighbourhood region” project, is supporting Jordan’s water sector in its on-going efforts to reduce non-revenue water (NRW), and contributing to improved network efficiency, service provision and increased cost recovery, by implementing an activity on the subject since 2022.

Following the related Consultation Workshop that was held last March in Amman, the WES team of water experts have successfully organised a Consultation & Validation Workshop of the draft NRW policy paper on the 12th and 13th of September 2023, in the Dead Sea, Jordan.

The Workshop brought together the WES experts and the 13 members of the NRW technical taskforce that were nominated from the relevant institutions and personnel from the Ministry of Water and Irrigation, the Water Authority of Jordan, the Project Management Directorate (PMD), the water utilities, in addition to representatives of the donors that are active in the field of NRW reduction and management.

During the Workshop an overview of the WES national activity in Jordan along with the draft NRW Policy were presented.

A long discussion on the draft NRW policy document followed, during which the participants gave their valuable feedback to contribute to its review/improvement and its customization while ensuring its complementarity with the water sector existing NRW strategy and action plan.
