  To ensure Jordan needs of fresh water up to 2040, maintain the environment of the Dead Sea from degradation, reduce dependence on over abstracted existing underground resources in order to save from further depletion, and to have a reliable and sustainable new source (desalination of sea water), and to plan for future generations of Jordan, it was agreed by Jordan, Israel, and the Palestinian Authority to proceed with the implementation of Phase I of the Red Sea- Dead Sea water conveyance project.
In this respect, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the three parties on Dec 9, 2013 in Washington DC. This MoU will be followed by signing bi-lateral agreements between Jordan and Israel, and Palestinian Authority and Israel; these agreements will include the relative details, requirements, and commitments of each party.
These agreements is a result of a joint effort by the three parties benefiting from the project to support regional cooperation in the context of the urgent need for drinking water in the region, especially for Jordan and Palestinian territories.
