Abstract

There are three environmental peacebuilding organizations in the Jordan River Valley between Jordan, Palestine, and Israel. These institutions work with communities on both sides to try and bring a greater level of peace to the valley through promoting water conservation measures. This thesis delves into the history of water sharing in this region, how these organizations have attempted to better the current situation, and their overall success during the last two decades.
