Protection of Wadi Arab Dam  in Jordan through Cash-for-Work supporting  vulnerable Jordanians and Syrian refugees

Project Factsheet_ Wadi Arab Dams Protection in Jordan

Jordan is the second most water scarce country in the world. Water Dams are an important water source for the country. With 16.8 and 7.8 million cubic meters as storage capacity of Wadi Arab dam and Kufranja dams respectively, both of them are considered an important source of water for the local communities and the agricultural activities in the surrounding areas. Funded by BMZ and implemented by GIZ, in collaboration with World Vision International, the project implemented in both Wadi Arab and Kufranja dams, aims to reduce the amount of sediments intake into the dams, and to maintain the storage capacity by implementing different landslides prevention techniques (constructing different structures and planting trees).
