Marking the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Israel and Germany, a round table on the subject of sustainability and the peace process was held in Berlin last month. The meeting was organized by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, a German government foundation which promotes partnerships between German and foreign academics.
Prof. Ofira Ayalon, from the Department of Natural Resources and Environment and the Director of the Natural Resources and Environmental Research Center (NRERC), attended the meeting and presented on the Israeli Center for Climate Change, which was established at the university in 2011. She also discussed MACSUR (Modeling European Agriculture with Climate Change for Food Security). This is an international project started in partnership with the NRERC at The University of Haifa, which deals with food security in light of climate change.
Professor Ayalon is part of the faculty of the International School Graduate Programs in English. She is a professor in the Global Green MBA program. For more information about this master’s program please click here.
