The EU inaugurated the largest seawater desalination plant in Gaza Strip: this plant will provide 6.000 cubic meters of desalinated seawater per day. The project was financed by a 10 milion euros EU grant and implemented in through partnership with the UNICEF and Palestinian Water Authority and the Coastal Municipalities Water Utility. Another 10 million euros were granted to take the plant into its second phase of construction, which is expected to begin in mid-June and last 36 months. At the end of that phase, the plant should be able to produce 12,000 cubic meters of drinking water per day. European Commissioner for European Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn said: “Natural water and resources have been greatly damaged after continuous years of conflict in Gaza, and as a result, 95% of the water in Gaza is unfit for human use. Therefore, we are supporting this water purification plant to provide pure and clean water to more than 150,000 Palestinians”.
