Major Conservation & Biodiversity Organizations in Israel

Israel Union for Environmental Defense (IUED)

<>Founded in 1990 and is Israel’s leading environmental advocacy organization. IUED works to protect Israel’s environment – as a public watchdog, as a catalyst to policy reform, as a source of free legal counsel to victims of environmental hazards, and as an initiator of strategic campaigns to further environmental goals. Where the average Israeli citizen might remain helpless against powerful economic interests, the IUED give voice to their concerns, and champions their needs.

The organization today includes lawyers and scientists specializing in air and water quality, solid waste management specialists, urban planners, an environmental economist and university student interns in a variety of disciplines.
