Developing alternative water and energy sources is one of the important challenges facing many countries in the world, among them Israel, which was not blessed with many natural resources. KKL-JNF makes a very significant contribution in these fields. A special session was devoted to these issues at the KKL-JNF WLC 2013, which was attended by Silvan Shalom, the Minister of Energy and Water and the Minister for the Development of the Negev and the Galilee.


Eduardo El Kobbi, President of KKL-JNF Brazil, who chaired the session, opened the discussion by relating to KKL-JNF's activities in his country. “The people of Brazil are not so acquainted with Israel, and what they do know is what they see in the media. When we tell them about what KKL-JNF is doing in Israel, and how it contributes to the whole world. Brazil has vast natural resources, but they do not always know how to preserve them, and we at KKL-JNF are particularly able to give them tools and guidance on the preservation of their forests.”KKL


Energy and Water Minister Silvan Shalom first spoke about the great importance of the work being done by KKL-JNF, and he promised to continue the cooperation between the government ministries and the organization. When he mentioned the gas reserves that were found in Israel, he expressed his happiness on the reduction of dependence on other countries.
