International Green Environment, Energy Expo & Forum “Palestine on a new era armed with alternatives” 2016 Palestinian environment on its all different elements and forms exposed to various sources of pollution such as pollution of air, water, solid and liquid waste water besides the open violation by the Israeli occupation, where the confiscation of land , control of water sources and polluted it by throwing waste water and industrial effluents and solid in the Palestinian territories , razed and destroyed agricultural land, Even the wildlife does not Scrape of destruction, thereby exposing the human and its surroundings to pollution sources and the spread of infectious diseases. Palestinian human rights violated by Israeli settlements and factories which built on Palestinian land, where they are throwing these sources and spilled nearly 37.6 million cubic meters of waste water on Palestinian land that surrounding them. Because of economic and social developments that have occurred over the past years , new lifestyles emerged which contributed directly to increase human requirements and diversification, this has led to increase the amount of waste generated daily and varied as well as industrial waste that contains many of the chemical compounds that are dangerous to all living beings and pollute air, water and soil which led to adopt scientific methods of waste management and disposal in healthy ways, so we see the importance of spreading awareness in waste management as waste recycling projects , promoting means of environmental awareness and develop a culture of waste recycling and a sensation of responsibility of the Palestinian community to the environment. Palestine suffers from a significant shortage of natural resources and mineral wealth which increases when we are upon talking about traditional energy sources of oil and gas, this puts Palestine’s energy sector in the face of big challenges depending on imports of energy supply. Palestine imports more than 86% of electric energy from Israel and 95% of the oil derivatives energy producers also from Israel. In addition to high prices and financial cost to the consumer and the Palestinian product where electricity's bill reaches up to $ 500 million annually. Due to Israeli raising of electricity prices in 2013 to 33% compared to 2010 when electricity's import bill reached $ 650 million, Furthermore, import's bill of oil's derivatives reached nearly 800 million a year , this import of electricity and oil just over 12% of the Palestinian GDP. What we have suggest above shows sufficient justification to rethink and go ahead towards other renewable sources not only to provide electrical power in Palestine, but also for recycling , conserving water sources and protect environment, this trend imposes serious and strategic challenge in front- of Palestinian decision maker and the private sector in finding a viable strategy for the foreseeable future , going towards new investments in this area, all that is related to the reliance on renewable sources of energy to ensure the provision of economic security for the purposes of consumption and production.

In order to achieve this, the Palestinian Energy Authority aims to prepare a strategy for renewable energy aimed to exploit renewable energy sources in Palestine to increase the proportion of its contribution of the total energy, equivalent to 25% by 2020 as there is an urgent need to search for renewable energy sources, which are defined as those energy derived from natural resources, which is renewed that are not implemented, it differs substantially from traditional energy which prone to burnout or completion, for example, the completion of the fossil fuels, oil , coal, natural gas and nuclear energy ; any energy being generated without emissions harm the environment. It consists of several renewable energy sources such as the wind, sun, water, and ground temperature. In order to find effective strategies to exploit and improve sectors of energy, water and green environment in Palestine and going along with the Government's vision to build a sustainable future for the state , will be held the following:

International Green Environment, Energy Exhibition and Forum Under the Main Theme "Obstacles and Challenges Facing Energy, Environment Sectors in Palestine Present and Future” This Forum is considered the leading Palestinian forum in the energy, environment and sustainability fields.
