Résumé
Sinai Peninsula is one of the most promising areas for future development. The major factor that limits the agriculture development in Sinai is the water scarcity and the sustainability of the projects. The study is aiming to assess the local water resources options in Sinai and determining its sustainability for agricultural projects. The surface water resources were evaluated by proposing flood water harvesting systems. The benefits from each system are estimated and unit cost of water is calculated. On the other hand, groundwater data are collected. The data is analyzed to estimate the unit cost of extraction and the agricultural benefits are estimated. As a result of this study, a map with the promising areas for the agricultural development from water resources perspective is developed.

Mots Clés : Sinai, Water resources, Sustainability, Reliability, Floodwater Harvesting, Groundwater, Lower Cretaceous Aquifer, Agricultural Development.
