Yet, since the early 2000s a partial institutionalization of water cooperation had begun before it was abruptly halted in 2011. Approximately 90 per cent of the water flow in the Euphrates and 50 per cent in the Tigris originate in Turkey. This paper will report on a new and ongoing project that will examine the core, This article examines the effect that increased competition among electric power suppliers will have on overall service to the customer and to profits.

All scenario simulations indicate winter surface temperature increases in the entire basin, however, the increase is larger in the highlands. It argues that focusing on external factors like drought and climate change in the context of the Syrian uprising is counterproductive as it diverts attention from more fundamental political and economic motives behind the protests and shifts responsibility away from the Syrian government.

Water, Drought, Climate Change, and Conflict in Syria. There is a broad agreement amongst the simulations in terms of the winter precipitation decrease in the highlands and northern parts and increase in the southern parts of the basin. HASHIM, AHMED S., "The Islamic State: From al-Qaeda Affiliate to Caliphate," Middle East Policy (Westport: Praeger Security International, 2009). In the fourth period, the role of water bureaucracies in the reorientation of water policies from hostile to cooperative became significant. They are strategic and economic assets, and in times of conflict be used for geopolitical purposes. Join ResearchGate to find the people and research you need to help your work. Since the 1960s, unilateral irrigation plans altering the flows of the rivers, coupled with political tensions between the countries, have strained relations in the basin. Notwithstanding the failures in inter-state water cooperation, the main challenge in the basin is to coordinate water management in the midst of the current state of affairs.

This article examines the role of drought and climate change as triggers of the Syrian uprising that started in March 2011. We analyze the evolution of transboundary water relations over four consecutive periods. Transboundary water politics in the Euphrates-Tigris river system have evolved with competitive power dynamics and cooperative institutional development. the Euphrates River, See http://ocid.nacse.org/qml/research /tfdd/toTFDDdocs/257ENG.htm. Mosul Dam: Why the battle for water matters in Iraq. Hydro-climatic effects of future climate change in the Euphrates-Tigris Basin are investigated using dynamically downscaled outputs of different GCM (ECHAM5, CCSM3 and HadCM3) - emissions scenario (A1FI, A2 and B1) simulations. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-28772478. It frames the 2006–10 drought that struck north-eastern Syria in the context of rapid economic liberalization and long-standing resource mismanagement, and shows that the humanitarian crisis of the late 2000s largely predated the drought period. and Society 6 (3:2014) 331-340. Even in the midst of the very recent political crisis between Turkey and Syria, partial institutionalization of water cooperation and growing networks of water dialogue at both the governmental and nongovernmental levels should continue to serve as open channels for easing the tensions. easy to look back and lament actions not taken, Untangling the Triggers of the Revolution,”, monitor.com/pulse/en/originals/2015/05/arab-world-water-conflict-isis-control-war, Orient_I_2017_071216_bis_Layout 1 07.12.2016 17:01 Page 17.

KIBAROGLU, MUSTAFA AND AYSEGÜL KIBAROGLU, Global Security Watch-Turkey: A Reference Handbook, Projected annual surface runoff changes in all simulations suggest that the territories of Turkey and Syria within the basin are most vulnerable to climate change as they will experience significant decreases in the annual surface runoff. Nevertheless, there have been notable efforts to build up a negotiation framework for data sharing and project coordination. Statistically significant declines (25 to 55%) are found for the annual surface runoff of the main headwaters area.
