Bleg: Aguanomics in Israel?

I am going to Israel next week, as guest of the Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute, to look at some technology.

As you know, I am ALSO interested in water management and incentives.

So, if you have any ideas of people to meet, places to go, then please write them here or email me.

FYI, I arrive Sunday night in Tel Aviv. I have Monday free and will be "left" in Jerusalem on Thursday afternoon (perhaps to return to Tel Aviv that night). I also have Friday free. I fly Sat VERY early from Tel Aviv.


  1. Check out the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies in the Negev Desert (on the way to Eilat). Lots of collaborative Israeli-Palestinian-Jordanian water management work occurring there.

  2. For a very interesting and inexpensive place to stay in Jerusalem, it is hard to beat St. George's College. A crossroads, full of NGO operatives, scholars, seekers, archaeologists, you name it. Simple meals at a common table, a fine library, and restful garden.
    Stop by the St. John eye hospital for a first hand look at real Palistineans and their plight; not cartoon "terrorists" and "fanatics". Just sad, scared poor folks like all the others around the world. In this case, they are getting remarkable care from private donors.
