Description - Water Resources and Conflict in the Middle East by Nurit Kliot
The Middle East is a region of international concern and political unrest. With severe water shortages, water, not oil, threatens the renewal of military conflicts and social and economic disruption in the region. This book forms a complete reference to both the hydrological as well as the social, economic, political and legal issues in the region. With resources over-extended due to natural and human causes, Water Resources and Conflict in the Middle East analyses the river basins of the Euphrates, Tigris, Nile and Jordan. The book provides detailed study of the hydrology, hydrography and geography of these river basins and an analysis of the needs of the economies and societies of the countries bordering these basins. Conclusions on likely areas of conflict are set within the legal framework of the Helsinki and International Law Commission Rules. The book will be a reference for all interested in the hydrology of the Middle East as well as the social implications of the region's water resources.
