Breakout Track 1: How Israeli Water Innovation is Helping the United States
Israel is mostly desert. There is no rain in the summer and it rains only occasionally during the winter. Drought is common.

What technologies were involved? Who deserves credit for the achievement? How is the United States benefiting from Israeli innovation in water management? What role can Congress play in supporting further innovation?
