Israel’s Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan and Bavaria’s State Minister for of the Environment and Public Health, Dr. Markus Söder, met on August 6, 2009 to discuss issues of mutual interest to the two states.

During the meeting, the two ministers signed a joint declaration of intent between Israel and Bavaria on cooperation in the management of nature reserves and national parks, with reference to the agreement between the Government of the State of Israel and the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany on Cooperation in Environmental Matters and Nature Conservation, which was signed in 1993. Minister Erdan signed the agreement in his capacity as the minister responsible for the Israel Nature and Parks Authority.

Cooperation between Israel and Bavaria, which is the largest federal state in Germany, will encompass, inter alia, the exchange of experts in order to learn from both states’ practices in the areas of supervision of protected areas and environmental education, visitor services and instruction.

At the signing ceremony, Minister Erdan emphasized the fruitful cooperation which exists between Israel and Germany within the framework of the existing agreement between the two countries on cooperation on environmental matters and nature conservation, which constitutes the framework for implementing the declaration of intent.
