In June 2009 I posted a blog about the dire condition of the River Jordan and how a unique collaboration of Israelis, Palestinians and Jordanians are cooperating to save it and care for the needs of a parched region. National Geographic Magazine has done the story “Parting the Waters” for its April edition on Water. It showcases the environmental dilemma, the political issues that have led to it, and how Friends of the Earth Middle East is committed to solving the crisis. What’s striking about the story is that, despite the lack of cooperation in the Mideast, people are managing to collaborate over water. They are fighting together for a resource they can’t live without.
