JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Sept. 1 â€” Israel and Jordan announced their largest joint project ever, a $800 million pipeline intended to save the shrinking Dead Sea from environmental devastation.
THE LEVEL OF THE SEA, shared between the two countries that signed a peace agreement in 1994, is sinking at the rate of nearly a yard a year and could disappear in a few decades, damaging tourism in both countries and indirectly draining scarce water supplies in the region, Cabinet ministers from both countries said Sunday at the World Summit.
â€śItâ€™s a catastrophe under way and it might be apocalyptic if we donâ€™t challenge it as fast as we can,â€ť Israeli Environment Minister Tzahi Hanegbi said.
The two governments said Sunday they hoped to work together to build a 190-mile-long pipeline from the Red Sea through both countries to halt the decrease in water level in the Dead Sea.
