Effective water management in the Middle East is not only necessary for socio-economic development, it is increasingly becoming a matter of war and peace. This book is based on the papers specially commissioned for the Middle East Water Forum, held in Cairo in February 1993. It covers the three major river basins and addresses the difficulties unique to the region's countries. Topics include the historical background to the politics surrounding the Nile's water, problems inherent in international river management, the strategic and political problems surrounding the Jordan River, developments in the Nile basin and how water distribution can be more equitable, and recent developments in international water management. The book will appeal to students, policy makers, and professionals concerned with water resources planning and management. -- Publisher description.
