Promoting Transboundary Water Management: Opportunity for Change and Stability

EcoPeace’s work is focused on a fairer sharing of water resources and a coordinated response to water scarcity in the region (Israel, Jordan and Palestinian Territories). Mitigating the destabilizing economic and social impacts of water scarcity is dependent on effective and cooperative water management in this region. Developing the political will for such cooperation requires a widespread understanding that all people interdependently rely on our shared environment. Awareness from all sides of these shared water resources’ constraints and sensitivities is a prerequisite for understanding and addressing the threats to the viability of all groups in the region.
