Arava Institute Research Centers

Transboundary Research

The Arava Institute is home to five transboundary research centers focusing on the interrelated fields of environmental concern – water management, renewable energy and energy conservation, sustainable agriculture, long-term ecological research, and sustainable development. These research programs continue to enable cross-border exchanges of knowledge and technology by providing young Israeli, Palestinian, Jordanian and international researchers the opportunity to work together on the pressing environmental issues of the region. In addition to drawing regional and international experts who work cooperatively with Arava Institute scientists, these research centers also support graduate students and research interns enrolled at the Institute.
