Résumé
hasbani river, a major tributary of the jordan river, runs for 25 miles in lebanon before crossing the border and reaching occupied Palestine. lebanon’s rightful share of this river is 35 million m3 in water volume, but regional conflicts have led to the under-utilization of the river as a water resource for its surrounding areas, and poor management resulted in the pollution of it. My project aims to reclaim the right of these surrounding areas and their inhabitants to clean water, and to revive the riparian ecosystem that was fading away in some areas. It sees the river as a natural and cultural resource that can protect the ecosystems surrounding it and contribute to improving the quality of life of local communities and future generations.
