Why Utah and Israel?
Utah is one of the driest and fastest growing states in the U.S., and must find ways to provide water for a population that is projected to nearly double by 2060 while maintaining thriving industry and healthy rivers, lakes, wetlands, and aquifers. Currently Utah is working to develop new approaches that stretch limited water resources and improve water efficiency, technology, infrastructure, and policy.
Israel has overcome severe water shortages to become a leader in water management and R&D. By prioritizing water issues and treating water as a national strategic asset, Israel has developed innovative solutions for water conservation and its economy has prospered as its technology spreads around the world. Israel offers many lessons and innovative technologies that can help Utah navigate a world of water scarcity while finding new opportunities for economic growth.
Israel and Utah have uncanny similarities in environment and industry. They both have hypersaline lakes (the Dead Sea in Israel; the Great Salt Lake in Utah) and a surrounding desert setting, and they have business ecosystems that have flourished despite challenges in water supply. On the business side, they are home to thriving technology hubs—Silicon Slopes (Utah) and Startup Nation (Israel)—that bring similar water challenges. There is also a developing Utah-Israel commercial relationship with huge room for growth and many opportunities for collaboration. Together Utah and Israel can develop new strategies to improve water management globally in desert environments and around the world.
