TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam is in Israel this week to discuss the challenges facing the world’s water supply

The International Conference on Water brings together government officials and business leaders from around the world. The event also features the latest innovations and technologies to develop new fresh water supplies.

Putnam says Florida faces unique water resource management challenges and that state leaders must plan for the needs of a growing population while also protecting natural resources.

He’s slated to meet with the ministry of foreign affairs and the minister of agriculture Monday.

On Tuesday, he’ll participate in a discussion about solutions to water scarcity problems and the importance of collecting data on water supply and use.
