September 7, 2006 – Cross-Border Adult Forum Meeting

Israeli and Palestinian community members from Baka el Sharkia, Baka el Gharbia, Tulkarem and Emek Hefer (all participants of the Good Water Neighbors Project) met at Baka el Gharbia to discuss common environmental issues.

The subject of the meeting was “Solid Waste & Sewage – Problems & Solutions”.

Members of these communities are particularly concerned about pollution of the shared Israeli-Palestinian water source of the Mountain Aquifer.

Presentations were given about environmental and water issues in the area, members shared ideas between them and then had a site tour to examine particular problems of Baka el Gharbia as well as progress made through the project.
