British Council grant for Center for Transboundary Water Management

 

The Arava Institute’s Center for Transboundary Water Management (CTWM) has recently been awarded a grant from the British Council. The funding was received for a project on off-grid integrated water and energy systems for potable and non-potable water in Israel, Palestine and Jordan, and will enable CTWM to continue the installation of solar powered water treatment plants in Israel, the West Bank and Jordan over the course of the next 12 months. The project will be carried out in cooperation with Cranfield University (UK), a world leader in water and energy science; additional partners are iGreens (Jordan) and the Palestinian Wastewater Engineers Group (Palestine).

  1. Congratulations to my dear friend Rotarian Suleiman Halasah and all the staff of the Aravah Institute. The British Council – you have a very wise investment decision to engage in this leading initiative that is not only a fabulous sustainable environmental project; it is as a peace building institution engaging environmental engineers and students of all religious and national backgrounds in the Middle East.
