Implemented by Mercy Corps in cooperation with JRF, the USAID-funded Water Innovations Technologies (WIT) Program is designed to increase public awareness concerning the importance of water conservation by empowering farmers, households and local communities advocating the adoption of water saving technologies. JRF is currently implementing advocacy initiatives targeting household-level adoptions of water saving technologies, as well as supporting the organizational capacities of community based organizations mandated with managing revolving loans aimed at facilitating household water savings, and engaging youth and women as community based water conservation advocates across Jordan’s Northern governorates and The Jordan Valley, focusing mainly on areas populated by Syrian refugees.
