The article highlights Israel's innovative approach to tackling the global climate and water crises through the development of a circular water economy. Spearheaded by Eran Yuvan, the Israeli ambassador to Peru, it outlines a four-stage strategy that encompasses seawater desalination, urban use of desalinated water, wastewater treatment, and the use of treated water in agriculture. This system not only ensures a sustainable water supply for Israel's population and agricultural needs but also integrates renewable energy to minimize greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, the article emphasizes the significance of drip irrigation, an Israeli innovation from the 1960s, in enhancing water use efficiency by 50% in gardening and vegetable farming, thereby addressing water scarcity and contributing to soil and agricultural product quality over the long term.

By: Eran Yuvan, Israeli ambassador to Peru The global climate crisis and the global water crisis are two sides of the same coin. On the one hand, the climate crisis increasingly aggravates the water crisis, while, on the other, behaviors related to water, the way we consume it, transport it and do not properly treat it as wastewater, accelerate the crisis. climate and cause unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions. Israel's experience in the circular water economy includes some simple but effective methods to create a water conservation route that is truly resource-efficient and low in greenhouse gas emissions. Since its creation, Israel has struggled to maintain efficient agriculture, produce its own food, and supply water to an ever-growing population; During this time, the amounts of available water have remained fairly constant and have even decreased. Israel is located in a dry region with little rainfall. In fact, about 60% of its surface is desert and the rest semi-arid. ...
