Dear Reader:

Our Winter 1994 edition surveys a wide variety of issues, from environmental education and information to air pollution and coastal management. The impact of the Year of the Environment in Israel continues to be felt as environmental issues are accorded ever-higher priority in the country, while abroad, Israel continues to take an active part in international environmental meetings. Israel’s contribution to the World Coast Conference 1993, included in this issue, should present the reader with an overview of the physical characteristics of the country’s coastlines as well as an understanding of coastal development and management policies.

Israel Environment Bulletin is published quarterly by the Ministry of the Environment. Articles may be freely reprinted but it would be appreciated if reference is made to the source.
