Asira Al-Qibliya, West Bank – On Tuesday, September 9th, the Palestinian Authority and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), celebrated the completion of the Southwest Nablus Villages Water Supply Project.  USAID invested $7.4 million in this project to improve the water supply and quality to more than 8,500 citizens in the villages of Asira Al-Qibliya, Madama and Urif, for the first time.

Nablus Governor Akram Rajoub; Palestinian Water Authority Head Minister Mazen Ghuneim; USAID West Bank and Gaza Mission Director Dave Harden; heads of the municipal councils; and community representatives were present at the inauguration.

As a result of this project, residents of the three villages now have access to piped water for the first time, at a price significantly lower than what they have been paying for tankered water.  The water comes from a secure source that is tested, and its quality is significantly higher than tankered water.

Conflict Management and Mitigation (CMM) grants are part of a congressionally mandated effort to support people-to-people reconciliation activities that bring together individuals of different ethnic, religious or political backgrounds from areas of conflict to address the root causes of tension and instability. Since the program’s inception in 2004, USAID West Bank and Gaza Mission and U.S. Embassy Tel Aviv have supported 69 CMM grants for Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. Below is a list of the current CMM awards that are being implemented by U.S., Israeli and Palestinian organizations.
