Short summary
In this paper we established a new method to choose the most appropriate allocating rule which seems to be more equitable and reasonable than other allocation rules to satisfy the riparian countries. To evaluate this new proposed method, we applied seven Classical Bankruptcy Rules (CBRs) and four Sequential Sharing Rules (SSRs) in allocating the Euphrates River water among three riparian countries: Turkey, Syria and Iraq.
