Presentation Contents

  • Extent of Water Shortage

  • Israel Policy in Water Management and Development

  • Projection on the Regional Relationship and Solutions



The Extent of Water Shortage (2)

Negotiations on redistribution of natural water resources are legitimate but not a solution.

The only solution is a cooperation on production of new water resources.


Israel’s Policy

for Water Resources Management and Development


Israel’s Policy for Water Resources Management and Development

The Government adopted a policy based on Sustainability (Quantity, Quality)


Production of Manufactured Fresh Water Resources in Large Scales (1)

Brackish Water Desalination Project - South


Reuse of All Sewage Effluents Scales

Reuse of 510 MCM/Year in 2010 (340 today)

Sewage effluents for Agriculture – 55% in 2010

Tertiary treatment – unrestricted irrigation

Nutrients and Salt Removal


Production of Manufactured Water Resources Scales

~ 40% of the Total Potential of Water in 2010 in Israel


Water Conservation Scales

Must become a way of life in our region!

Saving Water Technologies:

  • Plumbing Devices

  • Irrigation Technologies – L.V. I. (Low Volume Irrigation)

  • Education


Water Saving in Agriculture Scales

Production per Water Unit

The Projection on Regional Relationship and Solutions (1) Scales

  • Israel acts by virtue of the following agreements:

  • -Peace Treaty – Jordan and Israel (26 Oct. 1994)

  • -Interim Agreement – Palestinians and Israel

  • (28 Sept. 1995)

  • Water is an integral part of the agreement like

    other issues, such as security, borders , etc.


The Projection on Regional Relationship and Solutions (2) Scales

  • Bilateral activities (JWC, JTC, JSET’s).

  • Multilateral activities.

  • Water shortage forces the parties to bring the

    water supply issue out of the conflict.


Towards the Future… Scales

  • Sharing knowledge and experience in water

    resources management.

  • Continuous search for mutual creative

    solutions of additional water resources.

  • Implementation of new water resources

    with the assistance of donor countries.


Towards the Future… Scales

Water should be

a catalyst for cooperationand not a cause for arguments and disputes!
