Create a position of environmental officer in the Jewish Agency who will have extensive authority to review the ecological implications of Zionist-funded activities, require full environmental-impact statements, and work proactively to increase use of public transportation, adopt strict emissions standards and require the use of clean gasoline free of lead and other unnecessary contaminants.
Establish policies in Keren Kayemet L’Yisrael / Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) to encourage and support preserving open spaces, protecting threatened species, confronting Israel’s water crisis, promoting river restoration, reducing pesticide use, and adopting a transparent, open and democratic decision-making process regarding forestry management and other environmental initiatives.
