Israel’s environment minister strives for regional coalition on climate change

Participating at the OECD ministerial meeting in Paris on ensuring a resilient and healthy environment for all, Environment Protection Minister Tamar Zandberg says she is also working with neighboring countries to achieve this goal.

PARIS — Israeli Environment Protection Minister Tamar Zandberg traveled to France March 29 for a three-day ministerial meeting in the OECD on climate change and plastic pollution. Playing a central role in the organization of the Paris conference, the minister intervened several times in the forum and presented Israel’s policies on a series on environmental topics.

On March 6, the environment protection ministry published its annual work plan for 2022, which addresses combating the climate crisis, rehabilitation and preservation of natural systems, the transition to a circular economy, improving the state of the environment in Arab society, and adapting to international standards. Zandberg's goals are in sync with the environmental goals set by OECD member states.
