Following a tender process, GeoProspect - an Israel based consulting firm, was selected to conduct the SEA. A multidisciplinary team was assembled, including environmental consultants, economists, and engineers. GeoProspect worked together with BMT CORDAH, which has wide global experience in preparing strategic offshore environmental assessments.
This survey is the first of its kind and is setting new standards in the way natural resources are administered in Israel. The content of the SEA complies with international practice and the OECD requirements and European Union directives.
