Event Details

UN World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought (June 17)

"Rising up from drought together" is the theme of the year.


On June 16, ahead of the UN Day, MASHAV - Israel's International Development Cooperation Agency - will host a special online lecture on this topic. 

Israel, despite that 60% of its land area is desert, has overcome water scarcity by developing irrigation and desalination and other cutting-edge water technologies. We hope you will join us to rise up from drought together!
