Water integrity in the Middle East and North Africa region

This Synthesis Report provides an overview of the main water integrity risks in Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia, Morocco and Palestine. It also identifies the capacity gaps that must be addressed to reduce these risks. Based on these findings, a set of policy recommendations to improve national water governance and integrity in the sector are presented. The report is based upon the national water integrity assessments undertaken as part of the Regional Capacity Building Programme on Water Integrity in the Middle East and North Africa. The assessments included literature reviews, case studies, interviews and diverse discussions with relevant actors in the water sector. Although the degree and manifestations vary among countries, each face serious integrity risks at all levels of water governance.
