Partner with KKL-JNF

Where nature thrives,
humans thrive

Working with leading academic and scientific institutions both in Israel and abroad, KKL-JNF funds research that informs best practices in agriculture, forestry, and the environment. We then share our extensive knowledge—particularly in desert afforestation and agriculture, water management, food security and biological pest control—with partners in Israel and organizations around the world.

To do better for the environment we need to know more
Climate change, global warming, and a growing global population pose significant threats to our natural environment. In order to develop the best practices for combating these threats and preserving natural resources, KKL-JNF partners with leading academic institutions to conduct a variety of studies in the open spaces and ecosystems it manages in Israel, including forests, native woodlands, streams, pastureland, and more.

The diverse research focuses on the natural ecosystem, landscape and biodiversity conservation, and forest management in varying conditions. We strive to find solutions for issues related to species improvement, pest control, soil conservation, water economy, food security, and optimal forest resource management.


Our research partners include Tel Aviv University, the Weizmann Institute, the Technion, Haifa University, the Agricultural Research Organization’s Volcani Center, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Ben Gurion University, the Kinneret Academic College, and the Soil Erosion Research Station.
