The paper argues that with the continuation of the civil war, there is a need to look at the conflict since actions during the conflict and after the conflict are closely linked. A major element that comes out is the emergence of a civil society in Syria during the civil war. A strategy should be adopted by the riparian States, local and international funding agencies that focuses on strengthening of civil society, supporting their actions in the water sector and enhancing their ability to get funds for rehabilitation and reconstruction.
