Rehabilitation of Water Facilities Project in Area C of the West Bank
As part of the Government of Japan’s (GoJ) assistance to the Palestinian People, and in particular through its “High Impact Micro-Infrastructure (HIMII)” initiative, this economic stimulus initiative is focused on ready to implement projects to provide Palestinians with quick and tangible improvements in support of political negotiations.
The project falls under the national priorities for the enhancement and upgrading of irrigation systems to increase efficiency of water use and development of agricultural services related to irrigated farming. It consists of a group of integrated interventions, which seek to jointly reduce the cost of water, improve its accessibility, and enhance its use and management efficiency and effectiveness.
