The funding aims to implement water harvesting projects within the "Building Climate Resilience through Water Use Efficiency in the Agricultural Sector" initiative, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.

The total cost for the water harvesting projects is estimated at $33 million, with an additional $8 million provided by the Jordanian government.

The project is being implemented in collaboration with the FAO, the Ministries of Agriculture, water and irrigation, and environment.

The funds will be allocated towards the implementation of water harvesting projects in government buildings and residential homes, as well as supporting forage cultivation initiatives and the utilization of treated water.

The project comprises three main components: enhancing the capacity to adapt to climate change through the adoption of water harvesting policies at the household level in government buildings, optimizing water consumption, and incorporating rainwater harvesting techniques. It also includes the development and training of farmers.

The initiative is expected to benefit approximately 8,000 housing units and 400 government buildings in the provinces of Madaba, Karak, Tafilah, and Ma'an.
