Former environmental protection minister Tamar Zandberg, an ex-lawmaker and former leader of the Meretz party, has been appointed to head a new National Institute for Climate Policy Research at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in southern Israel.

“We saw a real need to translate scientific findings, the result of years of research, into specific policy measures; hence the decision to establish the institute,” says Prof. Yaron Ziv, head of the Goldman Sonnenfeldt School of Sustainability and Climate Change, where the institute will be based.

“I am confident that we can maximize environmental impact while ensuring scientific innovation tailored to the needs of society. Now, the goal is to inform decision-makers about best practices,” he says.
