EcoPeace held its Annual Conference, entitled "Water Security and Sustainable Development for our Common Future", under the patronage of H.E. Dr. Hazim El-Nasser, Jordanian Minister of Water & Irrigation.

The conference brought together high level national decision makers from Jordan, Israel and Palestine, residents and mayors from cross-border communities, international stakeholders and media. 300 attendees took part in two days of presentations and discussions.

Access to water and water security issues was the focus of the first day of discussions, with a special focus on Israeli / Palestinian water issues. The Jordan Valley and river rehabilitation was the focus of the second day and included the participation of transboundary basin commissioners from around the world (U.S., Mexico, Germany, South Africa and Balkan States) who shared their experiences and lessons learned.
