Water and Ecology

Dear Sirs,
Congratulations on this new journal!
The three articles on water in the Summer 1994 issue will help to dispel the myth that water issues in the region cannot be compromised. However, all three suggest, perhaps unintentionally, that every drop of water can be tuned to human use. The truth is that water also provides a variety of ecological services - services that are as critical for economic stability as for quality of life. If we do not leave at least minimal quantities in our watercourses, we will pay a high price for recovery in the not-very-long run - something Israel is now facing with its coastal streams.
Yours sincerely,

David B. Brooks, Director
Environmental Policy Program International Development Research Centre Ottawa, Canada

Dear Sir,
I received a copy of your journal and I am excited by what I read. The course that I am currently teaching on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will be greatly enhanced by your materials.
Very truly yours,
