Recreation and Conservation Plan for the Sources of the Jordan River and the Hula Valley, Israel  A master plan to guide the development of a highly sensitive region which is the primary source of water for the entire country.  The plan was designed to resolve the conflicts between three open space users: conservation, recreation and agriculture. It sought to protect the water ways, redirect runoff from agricultural uses, attract migratory birds and provide extensive recreational opportunities.  It also suggested increased use of agro forestry as an economic incentive for wood production and native herbs.  This plan was adopted and has been implemented in phases over the past 25 years.  Client: Israel Nature Reserves Authority
