President announces formation of Israeli Climate Forum to address warming crisis

President Isaac Herzog announces the establishment of the Israeli Climate Forum, which his office says “will lead deliberations about the climate crisis and the State of Israel’s role in the fight against it.”

The group will bring together representatives from various authorities and meet several times a year. It will be led by former MK Dov Khenin (Joint List).

“The establishment of the Israeli Climate Forum will underscore the State of Israel’s commitment to stand at the forefront of the global debate about the climate crisis, raise awareness among all parts of Israel’s leadership about the crisis and its severity, promote collaboration between government ministries involved in the matter together with different groups and sectors in Israeli society, and will promote regional and international collaboration to push for a response to the climate crisis,” the President’s Office says.
