Since its founding, Israel has been coping with water scarcity and has been treating the subject as a national priority. The country has been constantly developing novel and efficient water technologies, which can benefit the world as it is increasingly dealing with water scarcity concerns due to global warming.

 

Israel's success in answering the country's water needs stems from its ability to incorporate an extensive variety of solutions under multiple constrains.
