Title

Middle East water conflicts and directions for conflict resolution

Author

Wolf, Aaron T.

Description

One of the most severe problems to be faced in many parts of the world is an impending shortage of adequate supplies of fresh water. Issues connected with the equitable distribution of dwindling world water supplies could become a major source of both local and international strife unless more is done to assure fair access to water and more efficient water allocation and use. This paper examines the past -- how water in the Middle East came to be divided as it is today -- and also the present, looking at possible solutions for alleviating a water crisis and the political tensions it arouses.
