The Water Project Jamaica Hosts Water Tech-Fest
In line with the United Nations theme for World Water Day , “Leaving no one behind”, the JN Foundation through the Water Project Jamaica will host a Water Tech-Fest on March 22 at the JN Bank Half-Way-Tree Branch in Kingston, Jamaica. The event will assist Jamaicans to adapt to climate change by implementing measures to achieve more efficient and cost saving use of water. The event will showcase water adaptation devices, which will be on display on site by various suppliers in the industry. There will be interactive activities such as: how to read your water bill; how to detect leaks in your toilets and how to fit water-saving devices onto your pipes at home. Some of the exhibitors on the day will include: Instant Save, JN Small Business Loan and Aqua Flow Products and Services Limited. In March 2017 the Inter America Development Bank (IADB) and The Jamaica National Group signed two cooperative agreements to provide JN Bank and the JN Foundation with funding to execute a four-year project entitled: “Financing Water Adaptation in Jamaica’s New Urban Housing,” or the JN Water Project. The main objectives of the project are to facilitate the uptake of water adaptation measures in housing across Jamaica, including: the use of rain water harvesting systems, water efficient taps and showers, low-flush toilets, efficient irrigation systems, grey water recycling facilities, and other relevant water efficiency measures.
