Refilling the Dead Sea

Published onsdag 23 augusti 2006 kl 11.26

At an international conference in Stockholm Tuesday, a World Bank official said a study of a project to top up the shrinking Dead Sea with water from the Red Sea could start in coming months.

Vahid Alavid says France, the United States, the Netherlands, and Japan have all indicated willingness to fund a feasibility study for what could be a 4 billion dollar project. He was speaking during the World Water Week conference here. More than 1500 experts from some 140 countries and United Nations agencies are taking part.

Another study presented to the conference concluded that women in poor countries are often better at managing water resources and should play a bigger role in policy-making.
