Israeli-Palestinian Water Issues – From Conflict To Cooperation This book Israeli-Palestinian Water Issues- From Conflict to Coope- tion authored by a group of leading Palestinian, Israeli and international water experts is a unique and timely document illustrating the imp- tance of mutual understanding, respect and amity among peoples d- ing a difficult period of stress, whose leaders, sadly, have not yet found the way of resolving the conflicts between them and of living in peace with each other. Nevertheless it is a book which demonstrates hope, - timism and belief that people with good will in their hearts can help contribute to finding the way to peace and mutual cooperation in so- ing shared problems essential for their mutual survival and welfare. nd The participants in the 2 Israeli- Palestinian International Conference on Water for Life in the Middle East held in Antalya Turkey in October 2004, which served as the source of most of the papers in this book concluded the Conference with the following declaration: We two hundred participants in this Israeli-Palestinian International Conference ... complete our conference with a sense of optimism. It is clear that the Palestinian and Israeli participants, along with their international partners remain committed to solving the many challenges associated with water quantity and quality in our region.
