Jordan: Food for Progress Jordan Success Story - Where Harvesting Every Drop of Water Counts

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Since fiscal year (FY) 2012, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan’s Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation (MOPIC) have agreed to the supply of U.S. agricultural commodities under the Food for Progress Program (FFPr). Three separate U.S. agricultural commodities donations, benefiting U.S. farmers, total $54.2 million. These FFPr program allocations have strengthened the relationship with a strategic ally, and free trade agreement partner, in the politically tumultuous Middle East. The FFPr Badia Water Harvesting project ($4 million) is making a positive return on investment; at 60 percent complete, water is already being collected in the volume of millions of cubic meters.
