Consul General of Israel David Siegel Shares Israel’s Best Practices on Water During the NALEO 2014 Conference
SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As part of its intensive efforts to deepen and enhance ties with the Latino community of the United States, the State of Israel has long engaged with the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, as an important channel for communication with the elected Latino leadership across the country. In this context, the Consulate General of Israel in Los Angeles is thrilled to be a participant in the 31st Annual NALEO Conference in San Diego on June 26-28, 2014. We are especially proud to be active members of the Host Committee of the Conference.
“It is my firm belief that the experience and technologies which have made Israel a world leader in water management, conservation, and recycling will be of great benefit to our partners in the United States.”
On Thursday, June 26 at 10:00 am, Consul General of Israel, Mr. David Siegel, will participate in a panel on “Water in the Western United States”, at which he will present lessons learned by Israel with regard to its long-standing water challenges, as these pertain to the water crisis in California and the broader region. Israel, over 50% desert and having withstood chronic and prolonged drought, has essentially resolved many of its most pressing challenges in this domain through a combination of desalination, conservation and state of the art water grid management. These are invaluable lessons which can be applied here in the United States.
"I am very excited to share Israel's perspective on water conservation with the policymakers at NALEO," said Siegel. "It is my firm belief that the experience and technologies which have made Israel a world leader in water management, conservation, and recycling will be of great benefit to our partners in the United States."
Demonstrating our commitment to engagement with the Latino community and with NALEO, the Consulate recently became a life-time member of the organization. We are very excited to be a part of the 2014 NALEO conference and look forward to deepening and expanding our cooperation.
