Israel's Ministry of Environmental Protection has published the first phase of a national plan to combat climate change. This phase includes mapping the areas affected by climate change in Israel and the main steps to address and mitigate risks.

The National Preparedness Plan aims to diagnose and map the areas most affected by climate change in Israel, identify the impacts likely to occur on them, prioritize and consolidate key steps to mitigate risks and take advantage of opportunities in these areas.

The plan includes 48 proposals and nearly 200 actions that around 30 ministries and government bodies will have to promote and implement in the coming years to improve Israel's preparedness for the climate crisis.

About 50% of the initiatives in the programme relate to establishment and development, planning and implementation and creation of knowledge infrastructure.

The plan has been prepared based on a review of international preparedness plans, previous work carried out in Israel, interactions with ministries and other governmental and local government bodies, consultations with experts, and a review of measures taken by the Directorate during the years of its activities.
