Professor Noam Weisbrod – Director, Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research and past Director of the Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research (ZIWR), Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Professor Eilon Adar – Founding Director, ZIWR and Mr Shimon Tal – Former Water Commissioner of the State of Israel, will visit the two states in mid-January 2019.

Israel is long-recognized as the world leader in confronting water shortages and has developed highly sophisticated expertise and technological wherewithal in water creation, purification, utilization, conservation and management which are employed throughout the globe. All of these will be placed at the disposal of the national and state governments.

The initiative stems from the excellent relations which exist between Israel and Australia and between Israel and the states of QLD and NSW and it carries the potential to mutually develop a long-term project and strategy in the field of water which will benefit both countries.

The initiative is a project involving The Embassy of Israel in Canberra and the Jewish National Fund of Australia (JNFA), in conjunction with the State Governments of Queensland and New South Wales designed to share Israel’s successful experience in dealing with acute water shortages in the drought-ridden areas of QLD and NSW for the benefit of farmers and the general public.
