Walling out Water in West Bank
West Bank, Palestine, is divided into areas A, B and C, based on the extent of Israeli control over them. Walls demarcate the areas, restricting movement and access. This fragments the territory in a way that cuts people off from aquifers that should be their natural water sources, and keeps them from developing/ fully utilizing their water infrastructure.
These videos depict how this has led to severe water scarcity in West Bank, and how people have to cope with it.
Besides, a situation of conflict leads to groundwater extraction while discouraging recharge, as this perspective from Ethiopia suggests. How else, in your experience, does it hamper long-term groundwater potential? Please share your thoughts in the Comments section under one of these videos.
