The International Hydro-Political Policies of Israel

Deborah F. Shmueli, Ram Aviram

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The variables which determine the international dimensions of Israel's policies are heavily influenced by changes in domestic demand and supply. As this list of variables continues to grow, Israel's efforts to ensure its portion of its internationally-shared water resources need to be adjusted within the context of its geo-strategic interests and positions, its international commitments and the growing global concern with water issues. This chapter highlights the main characteristics of Israel's foreign policies in the water sector, how they have evolved, and presents conclusions which point to possible future trends.
