Government allocates NIS 3 million to fund climate change research on deserts

Sue Surkes is The Times of Israel's environment reporter.

The Ministry of Science and Technology budgets NIS 3 million ($857,000) over up to five years to fund applied scientific research in the field of climate change, with an emphasis on a desert environment.

It calls on scientists working on relevant projects to apply for funding.

The research will be carried out within the framework of the DeserTech innovation community in Beersheba, southern Israel, a joint initiative of the Merage Foundation Israel, Israel Innovation Institute, Environmental Protection Ministry and Ben Gurion University.

On Monday, DeserTech will launch a startup map and state of the sector report at an event in Tel Aviv.
