During 1998, more than 100 experts in diverse environmental fields, were involved in discussions leading to the establishment of a list of priorities and a course of action for addressing environmental issues in Israel. Background papers were prepared by experts in each given field and reviewed by additional experts to include their response and comments. Subsequently, workshops were established for discussing the proposals and recommendations that were presented in the professional framework.

The report includes the ten following chapters:

Open Spaces, the Urban Environment, Transportation, Air Pollution, Ground Water, Sewage & Wastewater, Hazardous Wastes, Solid Waste, Marine & Coastal Environment and Agricultural Environment.

We are certain that the material prepared over this past year will serve as a useful basis for decision making and establishing policies in the environmental field, by governmental organizations, active environmental groups, and public interest organizations. In addition, we anticipate that publicizing this report will be of interest and importance to the general public, and will provide the impetus and background material for further studies.
