A broad-based analysis of KKL-JNF policy
to evaluate the impact of its activities on the full range of geographic
regions, from the local to the global
A long-term impact analysis of KKL-JNF
policy, evaluating its impact on future generations
“Looking Before We Leap” - The
KKL-JNF will act to shape a “sustaining” vision in all spheres of its
activity. Policies in the
present will be derived from objectives set for the future.
“An Applied Policy of Sustainability”
- A focused policy that translates the abstract principles of sustainable
development into specific criteria and concrete practices will be
formulated for all spheres of KKL-JNF activity.
“The Precautionary Principle” - The
KKL-JNF is alert to unanticipated threats to natural treasures and the
environment that are entailed in unmonitored human activity. In situations
of scientific uncertainty, the KKL-JNF will act proactively to ensure that
natural treasures and the environment are not harmed.
