The Israeli Climate Change Information Center (ICCIC) was founded in March 2011, at the University of Haifa by the Ministry of Environmental Protection, as part of the national program for Israel’s adaptation to climate changes, set by the Government's Resolution 474 ( 2009). The main goal of the ICCIC is to develop a national scientific knowledge base that will support the evolvement of the national adaptation plan.

The purpose of ICCIC is to 1) gather and integrate available research and policy documents concerning adaptation to climate changes, in order to identify knowledge gaps in various relevant areas, to recognize the risks and implications of climate change and to propose a national policy of adaptation; and 2) collate Israeli scientific and technological knowledge that can be applied and marketed within Israel and other countries.

The second report is a complementary to Report 1 and focuses on the proposed national adaptation policy in the relevant areas and in detailed international marketing of the ICCIC activities.

The report examines and analyzes the mutual connections amongst the above-mentioned areas in a multi-disciplinary manner using Geostrategic and Economic perspectives.
