Summary

A water crisis is threatening several regions of the world. In the Middle East and North Africa, the crisis is serious and getting worse. Contributing factors include mismanagement of water resources, population trends and explosive urban growth, structural imbalance between demand and available resources, and a dearth of water-related information. This book presents an analysis of irrigation technologies used in the Eastern Mediterranean region, both past and present. It discusses the reuse of wastewater and other conservation technologies through case studies from Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, North Cyprus, and Turkey. It presents a multidisciplinary view of the water crisis, with discussion in the disciplines of economics, hydrology, agronomics, engineering, and environmental sciences. As a sequel to Water Balances in the Eastern Mediterranean, this book will be of interest to policymakers, researchers, academics, and development professionals working in the areas of water management and Middle Eastern studies.
