More About This Textbook


This book brings together leading international and regional scholars and experts to reflect on appropriate models of water governance for the Jordan River and Dead Sea basin. Decades of unilateral actions by the basin’s riparians has left this valuable water resource in a state of ecological crisis. Growing water demand amid growing water scarcity in the Middle East requires an appropriate governance system for the basin that provides for both economic and ecological needs whilst also taking into consideration the complex political situation in the region. The chapters in this book provide needed insight in how to establish such a governance system drawing from international examples in other basins as well as from expertise in Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority. The book is thus a valuable contribution to those working in the field of water governance and management in transboundary settings.
