Drought-hit Jordan to build Red Sea desalination plant

Jordan said Sunday it plans to build a Red Sea desalination plant operating within five years, to provide the mostly-desert and drought-hit kingdom with critical drinking water. Last month Salameh told AFP that Jordan needs about 1.3 billion cubic metres of water per year. But the quantities available are around 850 to 900 million cubic metres, with the shortfall \"due to low rainfall, global warming, population growth and successive refugee inflows\", he said. This year, the reserves of key drinking water dams have reached critical levels, many now a third of their normal capacity. Explore further Jordan, Israel sign deal to help save Dead Sea© 2021 AFP
