Supporting a sustainable environment in the Negev


"It is in the Negev that the creativity and pioneering vigor of Israel shall be tested.”
 
- David Ben-Gurion

KKL-JNF:
 
  • helps people live in harmony with the desert, ensuring the future for generations to come.

 

 

 

  • conserves and maintains Israel's largest forests, Lahav and Yatir, in the northern Negev, which contribute to carbon sequestration.

 

  • promotes methods to combat erosion and desertification, such as savannization.

 

  • constructs limans, clusters of trees planted in micro-catchments that subsist on rainwater runoff alone.

 

 

 

 
KKL-JNF is creating a better and brighter environmental future for the Negev!
