by Charles G. Gunnerson, Univ of California, Irvine, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Water Resources Planning and Management: Saving a Threatened Resource—In Search of Solutions


Empirical models for identifying potential water quantity and water quality conflicts in water resources development are presented. These planning models are applied to a previously developed approach to using water as an instrument for reconciliation on Cyprus and to other areas in the Middle East with special reference to Turkey's Southeast Anatolia Project. It is argued that international activities require increasingly sophisticated information and technology transfer between water suppliers and recipients as improving global communications reveal technological and economic disparities.
