Alternative World Water Forum

Palestinians in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) do not have access to adequate, safe water supplies. This long-standing problem has significantly hindered social and economic development in the OPT and denied many communities their rights to an adequate standard of living and to food, health and work. Palestinian per capita water consumption remains below acceptable international standards for the protection of public health. Chronic water shortages affect crucial aspects of life including hygiene, agricultural and industrial activities, and livestock rearing.
