The Arab Strategy for Water Security encapsulates the joint Arab approach to achieving sustainable development. It is a long-term program and practical mechanism for overcoming known future challenges in water resources development and management in the Arab Region. These resources are characterized by scarcity, disparate geographic distribution and increasing competition for utilization. In addition, there are problems related to the sources, streams and estuaries of many tributaries and rivers, including major rivers such as the Nile, the Euphrates and the Tigris; as well as groundwater aquifers, which are subject to various political and administrative divisions, whether among Arab states or among Arab and non-Arab neighbours. Additionally, some river sources and water resources are under foreign occupation.
