Project Rationale

Picture3Many of the water problems in the Middle East eventually derive from poor understanding of the neighbor’s needs and consequent lack of regional coordination in water management. Exchange of relevant information is constrained by limited research capacities at various water resource centers, which also prevent the pursuit of joint initiatives for promoting an economically more efficient and ecologically more sustainable water allocation. Hence, beyond improved international coordination, a better appreciation of downstream impacts of water use on neighbours and their water resources is required. The proposed project addresses these concerns by developing consistent perspectives on the concerted sharing of water resources.
