Abstract

Gaza has several water problems; inefficient water use by the agricultural sector, limited fresh water supply and high water demand, groundwater contamination, seawater intrusion and shortage of electricity. More water and electricity for the future development of Gaza that will give better life; a significant value of water should be added to the Palestinians living in blocked Gaza; more employment opportunities for this area; free the domestic market for operation and maintenance of their ongoing and exciting projects such as desalination, power and wastewater plants.
Reconciliation to reach compromise between the parties in Palestine is the main problem to solve in order to start any projects because so many countries oppose this idea. Several unsuccessful projects were stopped and destroyed in Gaza due to Israeli occupation. Egypt may naturally and peacefully increase its cooperation with and presence in Gaza, which should lead to increased security and peace in the region. In this study, discussion will be made from the past, the current and the future situation for the Gaza peoples as a part of this world. Different solutions will be listed as urgent for the Gaza life involving the building of a joint power and desalination plant, located in Egypt close to the border of Gaza and wastewater treatment plant for water reuse to agriculture purpose.
