Institutional Strengthening Project Officer

PROGRAM/DEPARTMENT SUMMARY
Mercy Corps has been working hand-in-hand in Jordan with local communities and partners since 2002 to implement US, UN, EU, UK, and private donor funded projects. In 2006 Mercy Corps began implementation of a highly successful $30M USD Community Based Initiative for Water Demand Management (CBIWDM) project, which worked with 175 community-based organizations across Jordan to promote water demand management and energy saving and generating technologies. In addition, Mercy Corps is helping meet the immediate needs of vulnerable Syrian refugees in Jordan, supporting them and their Jordanian host communities to meet urgent and basic needs by developing and supporting short and medium-term economic opportunities while also improving the capacity of shared infrastructure and services, such as water systems, in order to serve an increased population. Mercy Corps now looks to start a new, multi-year USAID grant to build on lessons learned from 9 years of strong community development work in water resource management.
The Water Innovations Technology (WIT) project is a 5-year $35 million USAID-funded program designed to catalyze water conservation in Jordan. Jordan is the fifth most water poor country on earth and urgent action is required to make better use of existing water resources due to economic, population, and climate pressures. The WIT will contribute to the overall objective of conserving water in Jordan, through the adoption and proven water-saving technologies and techniques, by achieving three integrated outcomes: 1) Water conserving technologies and behavior changes are adopted at the agricultural, community and household levels; 2) Access to financing for adoption of water conservation technology is improved; and 3) Institutions strengthened to support water saving technologies.
