Celebrating a new partnership between the Governments of Japan, Jordan and UNOPS

At an official ceremony this month, the Government of Japan displayed its continued support to the people and Government of Jordan with the award of a new grant, through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The JICA grant will support a programme for the urgent improvement of the water sector for host communities of Syrian refugees in Northern Governorates of Jordan. The project, to be implemented by UNOPS, is expected to benefit more than 20,000 people. 

Speaking at the occasion, UNOPS Executive Director and Under-Secretary General Ms. Grete Faremo stated, "This partnership is a perfect example of the positive contribution we can bring as international partners to the Government, and the way in which we could all work together – donors, the UN, and national partners – to combine our respective expertise and capacities to addressing pressing needs." ​
