Water in Palestine
Water in Palestine: Problems, Politics, Prospects
Editor: Fadia Daibes (2003)
Water has been a major issue in the Palestinian-Israeli negotiations since the early 1990s, however little progress has been made on either the bilateral or multilateral track. In the 'Oslo II' peace accord of 1995, Israel recognised Palestinian water rights, but owing to its complexity and significance, the water issue was relegated to the final status negotiations, together with other thorny issues of Jerusalem, border, refugees, Israeli settlements and security. Subsequently, with the peace negotiations all but dead, the Palestinians have yet to be granted their legal entitlements from the water resources they share with Israel. This book attempts to identify the issues pertaining to water resources in the conflict, pinpoint the crucial facts, clarify terminology and illustrate ways the current imbalances could be corrected through a mutually beneficial water management framework.
