Regional water system development in Israel and the middle east

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    Water in the Middle East is an increasingly scarce commodity in relation to the rise in population and the desire for agricultural development. The competition for water is not limited to the respective thirst of the domestic and agricultural sectors, but often transcends international borders. Hence, hydropolitics is not a minor issue in the region but a reality of life. The ever prevailing risk of drought adds further strain on the water system management, which becomes increasingly complex. This paper describes the main features in water resources and water policies in Israel and other countries, as well as their influence in the conflicts suffered in the Middle East.
