Israel offers innovation, technology to address PH water supply woes
ISRAELI Ambassador Ilan Fluss has offered Israeli innovation and technology to address the Philippines' water supply woes.
Israel recently conducted a Water Security Strategies seminar to share innovative solutions for Philippine water challenges.
Israel's Agency for International Development Cooperation and the United States Agency for International Aid shared with the Philippine government and water concessionaires in the Philippines the expertise and experience of Israel on water resource management.
"Israel invested in technology to support the growing demand and urbanization in the country," said Israeli Ambassador to the Philippines Ilan Fluss.
The technologies, he said, "were introduced together with good policies and regulations that made Israel the leading country in the world in managing the water sector."
"From desalination to reuse of sewage, minimum loss of water and more," the ambassador said.
"Through this seminar, we hope that the Philippines' key implementing
agencies will gain insights from the Israeli experience and adapt them to
local conditions," he added.
He noted that like all countries in the region, Israel faced a variety of challenges in the water sector. The Middle East is a dry area and more than 50 percent of "Israel is actually desert."
