Pagination or Media Count:
The water conflict in the Middle East is reaching a crisis peak. The region suffers from a shortage of water, a high rate of population growth and the absence of a clear criteria for sharing waters within the region. The Arab-Israeli peace process has created the climate for reaching a reasonable solution to water disputes. The United States, with its global leadership and regional influence, has an important role to play to avert Middle East conflict over water. This study discusses the facts bearing on the problem, the main water issues in the Middle East, evaluation of existing and potential water projects, policy options, water and war, criteria for sharing international waters, water and peace, and the United States role.
