CLIMATE: Greywater Recycling in Jordan

From the Global 3000 | The Globalization Program

In the Dead Sea Spa Hotel, water filters were recently installed, and since then a third of the valuable drinking water can be recycled as water for washing and flushing toilets. Projects like this are extremely important, because tourism is growing and water shortages loom. According to predictions, Jordanians themselves and tourists visiting the country will use about 513 million cubic meters of water in the year 2020. Added to that are the needs of the refugees flooding in from neighboring Syria.

War over water would be an ultimate obscenity. And yet, unfortunately it is conceivable... Water has been a source over so many years of erosion of confidence, of tension, of human rights abuses, really, of so many in areas whose traditional water supplies have been controlled and depleted by occupational authorities. That must stop if we're going to be able to develop a climate for peace.
