Deputy chief of mission in New Delhi, Dana Kursh: "A memorandum of understanding between the two countries is going to be signed in a few weeks on the potential ways Israel can participate, with respect to water management and Ganga rejuvenation"

The Narendra Modi government's ambitious plan to rejuvenate the holy river Ganga is set to get Israel as a partner.

The country's deputy chief of mission in New Delhi, Dana Kursh, said a host of meetings were held with top Indian policy-makers to understand where and how her country can pitch in - primarily in terms of technology.

 

"A memorandum of understanding between the two countries is going to be signed in a few weeks on the potential ways Israel can participate, with respect to water management and Ganga rejuvenation," Kursh said at a press conference here also addressed by two water experts from Israel.

While Oded Distel is the head of Israel's NewTech Program that oversees the National Water and Renewable Energy Program in the Ministry of Economy, Yoram Oren is an expert on water issues at the Ben Gurion University.

At the press conference, the experts said Israel reclaims 78 percent of its waste water, which they say is the highest in the world. Distel said Israel was also keen that Indian companies and institutions participate in the upcoming Watec 2015, a conference on water technologies and environmental control.

The three-day event is scheduled to open on Oct. 13 in Tel Aviv, a city on the Israeli Mediterranean coast.
