BMI View: We believe the ongoing drought, the reduction of the water resources, and the rising demand for thermal electricity generation pose serious risks to the Turkish water sector. Moreover, continued regional tensions between Turkey and its neighbours concerning the former's extensive dam construction and the latter ' s calls to slow or even halt construction of many of Turkey's water infrastructure projects will have a long-term impact on the sector.

However, there are also potential risks to the |Turkish dam projects should Isis seek to control water supplies further up river, or if the conflict spills onto Turkish soil. Equally, the fact that Turkey's actual neighbors in...
