Why environmental studies
Economic expansion coupled with limited resources, high population density, and rapid population growth all cause environmental stress throughout the world. In Israel, the environmental pressures are particularly severe as it continues to develop its economy, reduce social gaps, and provide opportunities for future generations. Coping with increasing environmental pressures, while improving quality of life, depends on a country's ability to adapt to inevitable environmental changes.
Israel is addressing these environmental challenges head-on through the development of research tools for understanding large-scale processes, evaluating technological solutions addressing environmental problems, and training top level researchers and professionals to be able to combat current and future environmental issues both within Israel and globally.
