Management of Shared Groundwater Resources

Eran Feitelson Marwan Haddad
Price: $ 25

For their supply of freshwater, both Palestinians and Israelis rely heavily on underground aquifers beneath Israel and the Palestinians territories. These aquifers are at the heart of ongoing negotiations between Palestine and Israel, as water is often alluded to as a major obstacle to peace. This book presents a framework for the joint management of shared aquifers, with specific reference and proposals for the major Israeli-Palestinian case: the Mountain Aquifer. It is the first book to explicitly address the issue of cross-border groundwater management, an issue that is increasingly becoming a focal point of discussions at both the international and cross-jurisdictional levels. It is also the first book to focus on groundwater resources in the Israeli-Palestinian context; groundwater being the most difficult question facing water negotiators in the Middle East today.Interested readers will include researchers, scholars, and students in natural resource management and Arab-Israeli relations; donors, development organizations, NGOs, and development practitioners; and all parties to the Palestinian-Israeli negotiations

Eran Feitelson is a research associate for The Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Marwan Haddad is a researcher for the Palestine Consultancy Group in East Jerusalem.
