1 Overview of Middle East Water Resource
1.1 The distribution of water resources in Middle East
1.1.1 Surface water distribution in Middle East
• Major rivers and lakes
1.1.2 Underground water distribution in Middle East
1.2 The characteristics of the water resources in Middle East
1.2.1 Transboundary Waters are common in Middle East
• The vast majority of the rivers in the Middle East are international rivers.
• International Border Rivers:Shatt al-Arab, Hezil Suyu

• Brings difficulties to fair distribution of water and water management.

• Upstream countries or regions will use water as a weapon to target downstream countries
1.2.2 Uneven spatial and temporal distribution of water resources (Precipitation)
• Timing: Mediterranean climate zone, rainfall is highly variable seasonally: rain primarily occur during winter month, while there is little rainfall from May to September, when crops are growing and need to be irrigated.
• Spatially, there are large geographical differences in precipitation in the Middle East: For example in Israel, rainfall decreases from north to south.
1.2.3 Contradictions between demand and supply of water resources
• Per capita water resources in middle east are predicted to decline with projected population growth (world bank statistics).
