Solving the Water Crisis: Israel’s Story with Seth M. Siegel

Situated in a semiarid region, Israel’s natural water resources supply it with only half of what it uses annually. The gap is being bridged by a unique combination of implemented technology, education and smart governance that enables more water to be manufactured and used. The result – a thriving country with a booming economy.

However, the story of the Israeli water sector was very rarely told. In 2015 Seth Siegel – an American author publishes a book that almost instantaneously finds its way to the bestseller lists of the New-York Times, the Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post.

This episode of Waterline features the full interview with Seth Siegel about his book Let There Be Water – Israel’s Solution for a Water Starved World.
The interview was conducted in September of 2017.
