Nordic KKL-JNF Partners Advance Negev Desert Research

KKL-JNF offices in Finland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway are funding a research program in Ambassador's Forest in the Negev, which aims to combat desertification through the ancient method of savannization. The study is testing the importance of landscape heterogeneity and its effect on surface runoff, in order to prevent erosion and encourage afforestation.

KKL-JNF offices in the Nordic countries recently advanced the research project through a special Hanukkah event hosted in Helsinki by KKL Finland.  The Hanukkah party was held as part of a general conference on forging cooperation between KKL-JNF offices in the Nordic countries. The event featured a video on KKL-JNF desert research in Ambassador's forest, and a presentation by Dr. David Brand, KKL-JNF's Chief Forester and Head of the Forestry Department on KKL-JNF's water technologies in Israel.

The Hanukkah party was held at the Helsinki Jewish Community Center, on December 4th, and was attended by about 100 people, including members of the Finnish Jewish Community, members of Finland-Israel friendship organizations such as KARMEL of Finland, representatives of the Christian Finnish TV-station MESSER 7/ TV 7, and individual Israel and KKL-JNF supporters.
