With extreme storms expected to become the new normal, the densely populated cities along the Mediterranean coast, where 65% of Israelis live, are susceptible to flooding and rising sea levels. Severe weather has claimed the deaths of Israelis and caused hundreds of millions of dollars worth of damage to civilian and military infrastructure.
SPNI is ardently engaged on every front to prepare this small country for warmer temperatures. Over the last decade, SPNI has taken a leadership role in creating sector-wide change, including nature-based solutions to control urban flooding. Our recent successful campaigns have revolutionized the management of Israel’s marine environment, fishing industry, and open spaces management.
We are Israel’s strongest advocates for the environment and aggressively lead planning and regulatory development processes, bridging all spheres of influence — the government, NGOs, and the public. Join with 30,000 members households in Israel to be an even more powerful force for stemming the effects of a warming world.
