North Badia Water Transmission Pipelines

Design of North Badia Water Transmission Pipelines (N° AMM 15/00826)

Detailed Description of Project

Jordan was affected by the huge influx of Syrian refugees as a result of the internal conflicts in Syria. The overall population of Jordan increased by 20% since the start of the Syrian crises in 2011. This huge increase in population placed an additional load to the already stressed infrastructure services in Jordan. Syrian refugees were distributed between refugee camps in Mafraq, and within the hosting communities in different governorates.
