Cliff Protection Initiative Approved
Each year cliffs along Israel’s Mediterranean coastline lose 40 to 50 centimeters to erosion. In order to protect the coasts, the Socioeconomic Cabinet has approved a plan to establish The Government Company for the Protection of Mediterranean Coastal Cliffs Ltd. This company will receive 500 million NIS over the next few years. This money will be used to establish defense mechanisms such as breakwaters, monitor local authorities that are in charge of caring for the cliffs. The company will have six public representatives as directors. One of the six representatives will be from the environmental organizations.
