Developing sustainable agriculture

​The Center district is involved in planning the development of sustainable agricultural, which is manifested both in the agricultural fields and in other fields such as tourism, environmental protection and so on.

These plans will allow the regional councils to manage and maintain the rural qualities, including maintaining the existence of agriculture, while taking into account the environmental protection limitations.


The environmental protection is essential for manifesting the potential of the rural areas, for touristic-agricultural development and also, for the development of leisure and recreation.

The Center District is involved in this field and considers the development plans to be a means of identifying the rural space as a qualitative one. The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development participates in the funding of 25% of the plan, up to 50,000 NIS.
