About this book

This book deals with water policy in Israel. It offers a detailed examination of the main sources of Israel's water, its principle consumers, the gap between supply and demand, and the complex, contentious work of analyzing and devising the nation's water management and use policies. Water Policy in Israel is arranged in five broad sections: the dynamics of moving from one policy era to another; supply management; demand management; the importance of the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea; and regional and global issues including water conflict and cooperation and climate change.
