Review for Friends of the Arava Institute, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Working with the Arava Institute has allowed me to participate in some ground breaking research in transboundary environmental management in close cooperation with Palestinian, Israeli and Jordanian colleagues. There is no other Institute in Israel that allows for this kind of close cooperation among colleagues in the environment field.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

ground breaking transboundary environmental research with exceptionaly hijgh scientific standards

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

work harder on increasing the profile of the Institute internationally

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

its committment and dedication to cooperation

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed and dedicated to the vision and mission of the Institute

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

be a world leader in transboundary environmental research and teaching

Ways to make it better...

more people in the Middle East were as open to the colleagues I work with in transboundary environmental research.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the political vagaries of the Middle East

One thing I'd also say is that...

the Institute has never cowed to overt or covert political pressure and has remained steadfast in its mission to foster scientific and academic excellence for everyone from the Middle East

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
