About Mercy Corps

Mercy Corps is a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible.
In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, we partner to put bold solutions
into action — helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within.
Now, and for the future. 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.

Program / Department Summary

The Water Innovations Technology (WIT) project is a 5-year 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.
GENERAL POSITION SUMMARY 
 Households in Jordan face limited water, relying on infrequent public supply, leading to grave concerns over water security. This is particularly true in areas where demand has grown with the arrival of Syrian refugees. In the north communities and households may access rainwater storage cisterns or community water points, which when properly maintained, serve as important supplies of water for irrigation and livestock needs. The HH and Communities officer will work to achieve water savings by targeting the largest water users in the households and communities where water conservation technology adoption will provide the greatest possibility for water savings.
Furthermore and under the supervision of the Household & Communities team leader and in close collaboration with Mercy Corp’s engineering department, the Environmental / water Engineer will play a key role within the program team.
