“Let There Be Water: Israel’s Solution for a Water-Starved World,” Seth “Yossi” Siegel’s 2015 book, showcases how Israel, with a reputation as the “start-up nation,” has combined technological innovation with conservation to achieve a water surplus at home and become a world leader in water management.

“Until recently, nearly all of Israel’s overseas water projects took place in economically distressed or underdeveloped locations,” said Siegel, a lawyer and activist.

Now, its “global water footprint” includes “providing water solutions in wealthy countries and communities,” including recently drought-stricken California. “Israeli innovations touch almost every part of the water profile,” he states, including drip irrigation, desalination, water purification, and recycled sewage.
