Welcome

The Alliance for Water Justice in Palestine is comprised of groups and individuals working to raise awareness about Israel’s use of water as a tool of oppression against Palestinians. Our work was initially sparked in 2014 in response to the “Innovative Water Partnership” formed by government and business leaders in Israel and Massachusetts, a project that is being replicated in other states around the country and other countries around the world.

We offer this website as a resource for information about Israel’s discriminatory water policies in Palestine and Palestinians’ struggles for water justice, with links to advocacy groups and organizations fighting for water as a human right.
