Fifteen papers, originally presented at the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Integrated Water Resources Management and Security in the Middle East held at Kibbutz Ketura, Israel, in February 2006, investigate water security at the domestic, national, and international level in the Middle East. Papers discuss retelling the story of water in the Middle East-reflections on and about a conversation at the Dead Sea; fresh water in the Middle East and North Africa; water development for Israel-challenges and opportunities; water and security in Jordan; water and security for Palestine; environment and security in the Middle East-conceptualizing environmental, human, water, food, health, and gender security; hydrodiplomacy-opportunities for learning from an interregional process; perspectives on alternative water sources in Europe and the Middle East; international water law and implications for cooperative Israeli-Palestinian transboundary water management; engendering water in the Middle East-some preliminary thoughts; water, agriculture, and Zionism-exploring the interface between policy and ideology; trading the rain-whether the world's fresh water resources should be an internationally traded commodity; transboundary stream restoration in Israel and the Palestinian authority; scenarios for a more sustainable water management in the Dead Sea Basin; and creating a sustainable future for Israelis and Palestinians.
