Where City and Stream Meet
Israel's streams including those passing through urban areas have been subjected to many years of abuse. The result has been that Israel's cities lost a central asset, which has instead become a neglected "back alley". A recent and welcome change of attitude to streambeds by Israeli authorities can now be seen both in planning policies and implementation. However, the attentions of Israeli authorities has mainly focused on the management of streambeds flowing through open landscapes, whereas urban stream issues have largely been ignored. The present study provides a review of the conflicts that arise around the interface of the stream and the city and presents updated approaches from around the world on the planning of urban watercourses.

Sustainability Outlook 2030: Environmental Futures for Israel
Sustainability Outlook 2030 arose from a perceived need that public policies should be pointing the way to the future.

Eco-Innovation in Industrial firms
Over the past two decades a major change took place in Israel's industry – it significantly reduced its industrial pollution and decreased the gap between Israel and most Western countries in this field. This reduction required the firms to expend major funds on environmental technologies, most of which exacted a heavy economic cost while making no contribution to the production process. However, solutions exist which improve the environmental efficiency of firms and enable them to consume less resources and reduce their environmental pollution, while cutting down on expenses. Innovative solutions such as these are defined as "eco-innovation" and are the subject of this research.
