Expedition Blue Planet:Arava Institute: Water Knows No Borders

Arava Institute: Water Knows No Borders
06:29 | 2009

Categories: Documentary, Science and Environment, War

A drought in the West Bank is exacerbating the situation in the already conflict-riddled region. As Israelis experience unprecedented water shortages, residential wells in drought-stricken Palestinian regions continue to dry up due to decreased rainfall and Israel's tightening grip on water use.

Parts of major West Bank cities such as Jenin, Hebron, and Bethlehem have experienced a lack of running water for weeks at a time. Even faucets in parts of Ramallah, the occupied West Bank's political hub, which rarely experiences cuts, have been known to go dry for days at a time.

The Expedition team talks with Israeli, Palestinian and Jordanian students at the Arava Institute where they are studying environmental and water issues as a vehicle for diplomacy, cooperation and ultimately, peace.
