The Applied Research Institute - Jerusalem (ARIJ)

ARIJ represents 23 years of combined organizational experience in the Palestinian Territory in the fields of economic, social, management of natural resources, water management, sustainable agriculture and political dynamics of development in the area. ARIJ plays an active role in the local community as an advocate for greater cooperation among local institutions as well as international and non-governmental organizations. In its capacity as a national research institute, it frequently provides current data and research necessary to the formulation of position papers and policy strategies on such issues as land and water resources. Moreover, through its work with donor institutions and regional and international experts, ARIJ promotes an atmosphere conducive to the introduction of new initiatives and ideas, and thus serves as a facilitator in the coordination of multilateral activities.
