RURAL & AGRICULTURE RENEWAL
Many agricultural and rural areas have been degraded or have not developed according to their potential. There is usually a wide range of reasons for this. In some cases, it is also related to the characteristics of arid or semi-arid areas, climate changes, desertification etc.
The company has prepared quite a few plans for rural and agricultural areas, which represent an overall strategy for dealing with the restoration of these areas and their future sustainable development. The plans deal with the physical, economic, environmental, social and other aspects in a combined manner. For example, it is clear that it would be impossible to introduce new irrigation systems if you do not have an economic base or the cooperation of the local people.
We have prepared regional plans for a few regional councils of different sizes, such as the Gilboa Regional Council (250 km/sq, 30,000 inhabitants, 32 villages) and Alona Regional Council (14 km/sq, 1,300 inhabitants, 3 villages).
We have also planned quite a few villages in rural areas, including additions to existing ones and new ones. In part of the villages very poor people live while in others rich people live.
