Seeking Sustainability: Israel’s Evolving Water Management Strategy

By Dr. Alon Tal


ABSTRACT

Yet, through a trial-and-error process, a combined strategy of water transport, rainwater harvesting, waste-water reuse, desalination and a variety of other water-conservation measures have put the country on a more sustainable path for the future.
