In October 2010, MCC and Jordan signed a $275 million compact focused on transforming the nation’s water infrastructure, creating new opportunities for growth and stability in one of the most water poor countries in the world.
Jordan is a highly urbanized, resource poor country of over nine million people with limited access to surface water or naturally recharged aquifers.
