DDD Conference

An innovation and technology pavilion

Convener: Sivan Cohen Shachari, DeserTech

Desert environments cover approximately 40% of the world’s land area and are already home to over 20% percent of the world’s population. According to the UN, by 2025, 1.8 billion people will experience “absolute water scarcity” with 2/3 of the world living under water scarce conditions. Desertification poses serious implications for biodiversity, eco-safety, poverty eradication, socio-economic stability, and sustainable development.
The DeserTech Community was created drawing on Israel’s experience in coping with resource scarcity in an arid and semi-arid climate. The community brings together entrepreneurs, startups, researchers, industry and policymakers, and is designed to capture the synergies among these actors to spur the development and commercialization of new technologies that enable sustainable living in arid climates. The DeserTech community is a joint initiative of the Merage Foundation Israel, the Israel Innovation Institute, The Ministry of Environmental Protection and Ben Gurion University.
DeserTech community offers to support an innovation and technology pavilion.
Participants: 30 Israeli startups to present their groundbreaking solutions to desert challenges in a physical pavilion. The pavilion will allow them to show case their technologies, interact with potential clients (researchers, industry etc.). In addition, we wish to attract international stakeholders to join the conference by inviting them to meet the Israeli emerging DeserTech ecosystem.
