Abstract

The Jordan river basin epitomizes many of the problems of water resource management which occur in other parts of the world on a broader, but equally complex scale. This paper analyzes the water problem in the Northern Jordan Valley with a view to obtaining a better understranding of the controversy which comprehensive development of this region. The argument put forward is that the existing water resources, if rationally exploited and managed, are adequate for meeting the bulk of the demands for irrigation, industry and domestic uses of all co-riparian states in the catchment area. A matter of major concern, however, are the imminent environmental and ecological issues which may compromise the operation of any intensive multi-purpose water system.
