About this session:
In Brasil, Israel is referred to as "The Silicon Valley of water for China", and Israeli solar and water pumping technology brings potable water to remote African villages. Drip irrigation, desalination, stents and other innovations from Israel provide global social impact in the areas of food, water, energy, security, and health care. However, food prices are still high, and many still suffer from basic necessities. Professors Reibstein and Wind will present and seek your feedback on Israel's accomplishments, challenges, and opportunities for future innovation.
