IUED’s Mission of Environmental Protection and Advocacy
Israel Union for Environmental Defense is Israel’s leading environmental advocacy organization. Known in Israel by its Hebrew name, Adam Teva v’Din, IUED has expertise in law, science, planning and economics. It brings effective advocacy, rigorous analysis and credibility to the daunting environmental challenges facing a small nation that has been overwhelmed by rapid and often poorly planned growth. Current key targets include: air pollution from power plants, industry and Israel’s rapidly growing car fleet, industrial and municipal sewage contamination of the country’s dwindling freshwater resources, destruction of the coastline by unplanned development and the anticipated ravages of global warming.
