Summary "In several international river basins in Asia, Africa and the Middle East, competing and disputing riparian countries are now moving towards a cooperative sharing arrangement. The signs of agreements on water sharing may be easy, but the real problem is how to keep these arrangements on track. Such agreements can positively contribute to peace and cooperation by addressing future needs, making sustainable decisions and being progressive in their management. Managing Water Conflict looks at these current stresses and likely future scenarios for this vitally important subject."--BOOK JACKET
