Climate Change Solutions
As the global climate crisis escalates, and climate events and disasters become more frequent, KKL-JNF is committed to research and initiatives that promote a sustainable planet. Our long-standing efforts to plant and preserve forests, create green lungs around urban centers, manage water resources more effectively, and educate the public on environmental protection have never been more important.
Our work over the last century has resulted in the largest planted forests in the Mediterranean Middle East; research supported by KKL-JNF at the only carbon sequestration station in the Eastern Mediterranean region has led to a better understanding of the impacts of arid afforestation on carbon sequestration rates. Our afforestation activities in arid and semi-arid areas prevent soil erosion and reduce soil carbon emissions. We lead and implement desert solar energy projects, thus contributing to research in the field of renewable energy. Our water reclamation projects (reservoirs and limans, etc.) have earned us international acclaim, and our R&D centers are trailblazers in the development of sustainable agriculture through advanced irrigation methods and more.
Our practical know-how and innovative technologies in all these field inform global knowledge, inspire exciting partnerships; and support international endeavors to protect our precious planet. Our vision is to create a Climate Crisis Center that will serve as a regional hub for innovative research and the study of climate solutions.
