About this book

This book presents various approaches to the resolution of the severe water resources shortages and issues of the Middle East, with particular emphasis on the Israeli-Palestinian water conflicts. The authors include leading Palestinian, Israeli and international water experts who have worked together for a number of years, many in joint research projects and dialogs, aimed at building up mutual understanding and respect, in an effort to help resolve these conflicts and enable the nations of the area to live in peace and cooperation. The studies consider the various geopolitical, environmental, legal, economic and water resources management approaches to improve cooperation and solve the problems arising from conflicting interests.
