How Israel Quenching Thirst Of World Amid Water Crisis In Desert (Part II)
Israeli engineer Simcha Blass discovered modern drip irrigation.. He patented Blass Emitter in 1959 in partnership with Kibbutz Hatzerim and it has become the first efficient method for drip irrigation, which has reversed the process of desertification without wasting water in the process of growing crops.
The success of Israel in water technology can also be attributed to the efforts of the Jewish National Fund that has invested in research and development.
With the help of JNF the country has shifted from being on the verge of a water crisis to world leader in its conservation and recycling. It has kept the country in forefront and has rehabilitated 250 water reservoirs that holds total of 66 billion gallons of recycled water.
More than half of its water is used in agricultural sector as well as to 4.4 million people per year. A data reveals 85 percent of the country’s treated sewage is used for agriculture unlike United States that uses just 5 percent its wastewater for reuse.
The country is also to be saluted for cleaning its rivers and streams. It has made the desert bloom and has become a world leader in water recycling and water preservation. Other countries must learn from it and should seek to emulate similar policies when the question arises to water efficiency and defeating water crisis.
As of now, at least Israel is able to quench the thirsty world.http://www.dailynewsz.com/how-israel-quenching-thirst-of-world-amid-water-crisis-in-desert-part-ii/http://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/How-Israel-Quenching-Thirst-Of-World-Amid-Water-Crisis-In-Desert.jpghttp://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/How-Israel-Quenching-Thirst-Of-World-Amid-Water-Crisis-In-Desert-300x300.jpgHealthworld newsisrael,water,water crisis,water shortage
