About this book

The 'bread-basket' of Arabia is importing more water via grain than is pumped locally, and millions of development dollars have been funnelled into improving the water supply of this stressed city with no result. This book explores these and other paradoxes.


Autopsy of an aquifer; a socio-economic map of water allocation and use; discussion - anatomy of a water crisis; conclusion.
