Water resources in Lebanon: Characterization, water balance, and constraints

El-Fadel, M., Zeinati, M and Jamali, D (2000) Water resources in Lebanon: Characterization, water balance, and constraints International Journal of Water Resources Development, 16, (4), pp. 615-638. (doi:10.1080/713672540).

Record type: Article


Worldwide water resources are not uniformly distributed and are generally scarce in arid and semiarid zones such as the Middle East. Lebanon, which is located along the Mediterranean shores of the Middle East, remains blessed with relatively more water in comparison with its neighbouring countries. This paper examines increased pressure on Lebanon's water resources requiring the formulation and implementation of a comprehensive management plan to meet future water demands. Water resources are described with the corresponding present and future water balance, environmental stresses, and constraints facing the water sector in Lebanon.
