About Us

Adam Teva V’Din is a transformative force in Israel’s environmental law, policies and practices.

Government officials, lawmakers, local authorities, business stakeholders as well as Israeli communities recognize Adam Teva V’Din as the national environmental watchdog and champion of Israelis’ rights to safe, clean and healthy environment.

Our public interest lawsuits have improved air quality and drinking water safety, blocked commercial development on public beaches, and cleaned up putrid rivers. We have authored and promoted most of Israel’s environmental laws in the last 15 years, and secured new approaches to reducing, reusing and recycling waste. 

Our environmental justice team has worked with thousands of community activists to bring relief from noise and air pollution and loss of green public spaces. And our pro bono legal and planning guidance has reduced environmental hazards to Arabs in the Galilee and central Israel, Bedouin in the Negev, and Jews from all socio-economic groups and geographic areas.

Today, our focus is on bringing about a Climate Law, climate justice, climate adaptation and climate resilience strategies.
