Abstract

Fundamentally speaking, either too much water (e.g. floods) or a lack of water (e.g. drought) can become an issue of security. In this study, water security is limited to the study of a lack of water, as this is assumed to be the main problem connected with water in Israel and Jordan. The questions that then arise are, how much water is necessary to ensure a water secure life? and at what level of quality should water be provided?
