Israel’s Sustainable Water Management Research Supports United Nations Goals
The Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev is engaged in broad-based research that encompasses nano science and pore scale phenomena and extends to pilot projects and field studies. Israel’s sustainable water management supports United Nations sustainability goals.
An interdisciplinary team includes hydrologists, soil scientists, geologists, chemists, microbiologists, and engineers. The result is a unique scientific environment facilitating the investigation of environmental challenges and the development of engineering solutions for water-related problems. Young and dynamic, the Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research is open to change, and research topics are “fine-tuned” to remain responsive to constantly evolving needs and challenges.
ZIWR members are actively engaged in research projects within Israel, and collaborate with other scientists worldwide. Particular emphasis is placed on research and development of water resources in drylands in general, and on the local conditions of the Negev in particular. Ben-Gurion University of the Negev remains mindful of its founding mission to spearhead development of Israel’s southern region while taking its place in the global scientific community.
