German-Israeli Water Technology Cooperation Programme – Call for Proposals 2019

Call closes: 28 March 2019

Water in sufficient quantity and quality is an essential basis of life. But global water needs are steadily increasing with a simultaneously rapid decline in natural water resources and water-dependent ecosystems. This applies even more in arid and semi-arid areas.
