World Scientific author Dr. Daniel Hillel won the World Food Prize for his work in founding an innovative new way of micro-irrigation, which transports water across arid regions of the world. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton presented Hillel the award and commended him for his technology that uses dripping, trickling, and a continuous feed-irrigation to bring food production revolution to the Middle East, positively affecting millions of people. The work does not stop there for Hillel. He is currently in collaboration with World Scientific on a piece that breaks down the world’s climate change and how it is going to affect agroecosystems. The first set in the series is already out, but Hillel plans on releasing several more.
“We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Dr Hillel on this prestigious award for the inspiring work that he has done for the benefit of so many all over the world. It is a great privilege for us to be able to work alongside with him on such an important issue such as climate change and to bring this important knowledge to the scientific community to further its cause,” says Mr. Max Phua, World Scientific’s Executive Director.
