Summary, in English

Water resources issue in the Middle East is an important question related to the 4th June 1967 line in the Middle East peace process. This paper focuses on possibilities within the Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) approach to contribute to the peace process between what is called Israel and Arab countries emphasizing fruitful cooperation to resolve the 4th June 1967 line issue. The paper shows that start of a possible cooperation could be founded on interest-based negotiations and built on IWRM prin-ciples by a simple geographical allocation plan for the Lake Tiberias water together with a joint environ-mental protection plan to build cooperation instead of confrontation and integration instead of fragmenta-tion. In a better cooperative climate, withdrawing from the 4th June 1967 line could be a possibility be-cause negotiation results would incur safer access to sustainable water resources and a comprehensive peace.
