The State of Israel
A regional symposium on the ‘Enhancement of Coastal Productivity in the Middle East’ was organized and hosted in Elat, Israel in October 1996. Forty eight Israeli participants attended it as well as people from other countries. An observer from Israel attended the intersectoral workshop ‘Towards Wise Coastal Development Practices’ held at UNESCO headquarters in Paris in the beginning of December 1998. A report on the workshop was published in English and French as CSI info 10 (2000): ‘Wise Coastal Practices for Sustainable Human Development. Results of an Intersectoral Workshop and Preliminary Findings of a Follow-up Virtual Forum’.
