The national plan must implement the recommendations and establish an administration to prepare the State of Israel for adaptation to climate change. It must also establish a governing body, to be called the Climate Change Preparedness Administration, which will be responsible for inter-ministerial coordination and monitoring the implementation of the national adaptation strategy and the implementation of the preparation plans in the outline of the adaptation plan and updated from time to time. The administration will be headed by the Ministry of Environmental Protection and will ensure a coordinated effort between government ministries and other public authorities.
