The services that nature provides society are called ecosystem services. Our study examines desert ecosystem services and how it changes amongst cultures

We look at how the same ecosystem provides different services to the societies of Israel and Jordan in the Arava.

We also map ecosystem services using a GIS software. Our study is aimed to help plan development in the region in a sustainable way. Our study is also part of the national project of Israel’s ecosystem assessment, which is the national continuation to the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment.
