White House Introduces Israeli Incubator to Solve California’s Water Crisis

The White House recently announced during its “Water Summit” a series of projects and programs designed to “elevate a national dialogue on the state of our nation’s water resources and infrastructure,” with support, investments, and resources provided for technologies that can improve water management, promote conservation, and “advance water sustainability on all fronts.”

The White House approved a total of 30 new projects. In Los Angeles, an Israeli cleantech incubator was approved as one of few internationally born projects. Ten Israeli companies will be introduced to to the U.S. market to develop solutions to combat California’s water crisis.

That project, announced earlier this month at a summit on water solutions, “builds on California and Israel’s March 2014 memorandum of understanding to cooperate on developing water and green technology solutions,” the White House said in a statement.
