The countries concerned, from Greece, Spain and Italy to Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey and Israel, to name but a few, are already experiencing a range of threats to water security – some natural, some man-made.

Alongside the more immediate issue of water scarcity, these factors could also contribute to conflict within and between countries.
