Tel Aviv outlines plan to face climate crisis

The Tel Aviv-Yafo municipality has unveiled an ambitious plan to meet the challenges of climate change, a first for Israeli cities.

The Tel Aviv-Yafo municipality presented to the public a detailed climate action plan on Aug. 5, making it the first Israeli municipality program designed to cope with the threat of climate change.

The climate action plan took several months to develop. The process took place within the framework of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, a global network of cities fighting global warming. Tel Aviv-Yafo is part of this network that includes Durban in South Africa, Chengdu in China, Jakarta in Indonesia and many more. As such, it is committed to adopting a program for adapting to climate change, including preparing for rising temperatures and changes to rainfall trends and quantities.
