Nov. 3-5, 2008 – Pro Aquifer Professional Conference

conference slide for pro aquifer project

The “Pro-Aquifer” project worked in two pilot municipalities – Umm el Fahem in Israel and Tulkarm in the Palestinian Territories – to identify and address potential threats to the Mountain Aquifer, a vital shared resource that provides drinking water for both Israelis and Palestinians.

We drew on, and applied the lessons learned from, these case studies to Israeli and Palestinian municipalities in the Mountain Aquifer recharge area, and beyond.

This conference was the “kick-off” to a 3-day course that discussed the issues and policy recommendations that we identified and developed throughout this project.
