Washington D.C. – Israel Water Summit: “Israel and the Global Water Crisis: Practical Approaches”

Thursday, June 30, 2016 Registration 8:00 am • Water Summit 8:30 am – 3:00 pm Hogan Lovells, LLP Conference Center 555 13th Street NW • Washington, D.C. 20004 Register by June 17 at jnf.org/dcwatersummit.

Both a national and global water crisis are upon us. Israel has been at the forefront of water solutions including desalination, drip irrigation, water purification and reuse, for several decades. Jewish National Fund has played a central role in Israel’s water achievements—and continues to do so. To share Israel’s technological advancements and accomplishments in water “technology” with the U.S., JNF invites you to its exclusive Washington D.C. – Israel Water Summit.

Hear from water expert Seth M. Siegel, author of Let There Be Water: Israel’s Solution for a WaterStarved World as he delivers his keynote speech. Our program will also feature high-level water professionals and experts including:
