As part of the events that took place at the UN Climate Change Conference in Cancun, Mexico, the Israeli delegation held a side event that addressed the various ways of adapting to life in arid regions. KKL-JNF initiated the side event together with the government of Israel in order to present and share the knowledge Israel has acquired on adapting to hot and arid climates. Also, KKL-JNF was the only organization represented in the Israeli delegation that decided to erect a pavilion at the conference's exhibitions hall.
