New project will increase urban water resilience

The government has yet to advance a Climate Law for Israel or any other framework for helping local authorities build resilience to the ravages of climate change.

The City of Ramat Gan isn’t waiting for national leadership to materialize. With partial funding from the European Union’s Climate for Cities program Ramat Gan has launched a multi-year, multi-partner program to build a sustainable, nature-based solution to flooding of the Kofer stream that devastates adjacent neighborhoods every year. The program will collect and purify half a million cubic meters of runoff water which will be pumped into the aquifer for future reuse.

The city’s partners – Adam Teva V’Din, Shenkar College of Technology and Bar Ilan University – are contributing their legal, technical and sustainability expertise with the goal of producing a model for stream restoration and surface runoff management that will be replicable in other towns and cities throughout Israel.
