Israel Holds The Solution To The World's Water Crisis

Clean water

Despite being in the middle of the desert, with a growing population and minimal rainfall, Israel, unlike her thirsty neighbors, boasts a surplus of water. In addition to sharing water with Jordan and Palestinians, Israel also exports water technologies to the tune of 2.2 billion and rising.

Israel's groundbreaking water technologies include: drip irrigation, dual flush toilets, advanced waste water treatment and reuse, free-market pricing of water, drought resistant seeds, cutting edge metering and leak-detection systems, conservation education, and precision agriculture.

More than 150 countries have already been assisted by Israel in addressing their water problems. Israel provides training in water management and irrigation to its Palestinian and Jordanian neighbors and to more than 100 developing countries, 29 of them in Africa.

In the United States, there is currently a looming water crisis in 40 states, especially California and Texas. California is already in close contact with Israeli water experts and agricultural experts, who are currently building a desalination plant in California that will be the largest in the Western hemisphere, providing 50 million gallons of water per day.
