Pedraza Rodríguez, Laura Sofía
The interest of this case study is to examine the situation lived between the members of the Tigris-Euphrates System, a transboundary water resource, between 1990 and 2003. It analyzes and explains how the national interest of Turkey, Syria and Iraq, as coastal States of the river basin, represented an obstacle to the implementation of Integrated Water Resources Management in the basin, as it impeded the cooperation and coordination of government policies, preventing the watershed protection and the ensuring of access to the resource equitably. This case study is part of the Environmental Security, mainly about the theory of Environmental Scarcity exposed by Thomas Homer-Dixon and the Group of Toronto, concerning to the relationship between the scarcity of a renewable natural resource and the emergence of a conflict.
