AMMAN — The Jordanian government signed with the European bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) grant and financing agreements worth EUR45 million to carry out the Ain Ghazal Wastewater Project.

The project entails the construction of a new 30.4 km wastewater conveyor from the Ain-Ghazal Treatment Plant ("AGTP") to the Samra Wastewater Treatment Plant ("Samra WWTP").

The agreement was signed by Minister of Planning and International Cooperation Imad Fakhouri and Director of the EBRD's Office in Amman Heike Harmgart in the presence of Minister of Water and Irrigation Hazem Nasser and the British Ambassador in Amman Edward Oakden.

The Project is part of the EBRD's Refugee Crisis Response Programme and forms part of wider engagement with Water Authority aimed at upgrading Jordan's wastewater system and increasing its resilience. The proposed investment will help avoid potential serious pollution of the environment.
