Water policy and law in the Mediterranean: an evolving nexus

This book addresses water policy and law and other aspects of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), including measures undertaken to satisfy demand for water in an environment exposed to risks of impact of unpredictable natural occurrences, such as floods and water scarcity. It is intended to be applicable everywhere in the world, where the conflicts between agriculture and urbanisation, between energy production and water abstraction, between flood protection measures and wetland restoration plans are so painfully common.

The book consists of eleven specific case studies from all over the Mediterranean (and a bit beyond), which include:
- Water law in Mediterranean countries (Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and the Occupied Palestinian Territories)
