This article will discuss the effects of humans on the unique ecosystem of the Dead Sea. It will show how poor management of an international lake has led to environmental degradation of catastrophic proportions. After presenting the geological and political background to the Dead Sea's present state, the article will present a model of governance based on both national and international water laws. Finally, the article will suggest a system of integrated water resource management to be implemented by a proposed Dead Sea Basin Commission.
