The Gulf of Aqaba Environmental Action
Plan (GAEAP) represents for the Government of Israel a step
towards achieving the national environmental objectives
outlined in its legislation. The proposed actions, both
curative and preventive, will protect the Gulf's land
and water interface and ensure conservation of natural
resources within a framework in which economic development
can take place. The Israeli GAEAP is a component of the
Taba-Eliat-Aqaba-Macro Area (TEAM) project which is
sponsored by the European Union within the framework of the
Regional Economic Development and Environment Multilateral
Working Groups of the Middle East Peace Process. The GAEAP
implements a strategy including the strengthening of the
local capability for environmental protection, revision of
the statutory master plans on the basis of a precise
determination of carrying capacity of the natural resources,
completion of the proposed declaration of additional marine
and terrestrial natural reserves, and implementation of
environment-related projects, in particular for pollution
control. The latter projects relate to marine pollution from
land- and marine-based sources, enhancing management of
protected areas, implementing a monitoring and research
program, increasing public participation, and developing
trans-boundary cooperation.
