Hydropolitics in the West Bank and Gaza Strip


The issue of water is one of the five issues that remain to be negotiation under the final status negotiations. This comprehensive work examines the vital issue of water as a political issue in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The first chapter provides a valuable review of the literature on water, discussing hydropolitical works that focus on political and legal water issues, technical analyses that analyze matters such as problems of pollution and infrastructure, and modeling publications that propose new water management methods on national and regional levels. Exploring the history of the regionís water policies in the last hundred years, the author explains the conflicts and power struggles that have occurred on the local, national, and international levels over this most important resource. The author also analyzes the current strategy of the Palestinian Water Authority. The book contains many tables, pictures, maps and an extensive bibliography, illustrating this complex issue.
