Training Presentations • Tel Aviv, Israel • 18-19 June 2013
The 2-day training was co-organized by the Ministry of Environmental Protection of Israel and the Cleaner Production Regional Activity Center of UNEP/MAP under the framework of the Horizon 2020 Capacity Building Mediterranean Environment Programme (H2020 CB/MEP – EU funded project). The main objective of the workshop was to increase the participants’ understanding and knowledge on LCA data collection and databases and to exchange on local studies done in the country and promote the use of LCA.
The Life Cycle Initiative contributed to the training with the presentation of environmental LCA within a Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment framework. Furthermore, it introduced the work on LCA databases and proposed next steps for networking and facilitating the generation of new data in key sectors in the country.
About 60 participants from the Ministries and public sector, private sector, academia and civil society joined the workshop, learned from experts abroad, presented local case studies, and discussed ways to move life cycle thinking forward in their country. Outcomes of the seminar include an agreement to setup a life cycle network in Israel and to host a 2nd national life cycle event in 2014.
