The annual renewable water resources of the region were given by the World Bank (1994) to be about 350 billion cu m (1 cu m 3. cu ft), with almost 50% of this water crossing national boundaries. This amounts to about 1,400 cu m per person per year, which is much less than 20% of the global average.
Total water productivity in the Middle East and North Africa is only about half the world’s average .

The MENA region (Middle East and North Africa) is located between longitudes 13◦ W and 60◦ E and between latitudes 15◦ N and 40◦ N covering a surface area of about 1. mil-lion square kilometers or about 8 % of the area of the world (Fig. 1). Because of the prevailing arid conditions in the re-gion, about 85 % of the area is desert. availability of water resources in the MENA region, it is necessary to include the upstream river basins of all MENA countries in the model domain. To identify the upstream ar-eas, an overlay was made using a map with major drainage basins derived from the Hydro1K database (USGS, 2012).
