Abstract: In the Mediterranean basin, wide differences in water supply and demand characteristics exist and no individual case study may be a representative of the entire region. Some countries suffer problems of overexploitation of groundwater while others suffer from water quality degradation. On the other hand, some have enough or plentiful water but lack institutional structures to manage water efficiently, while others have scarce and limited water and seek non-conventional water like desalination or importation of water.
