For more than 60 years, about half of the Bedouin population in the Negev has lived in acute deprivation, without basic services including electricity, water and roads, and with neither local government nor recognition of their villages.The overall goal of this Alternative Master Plan (AMP) is to present a diverse and agreed planning solution based on the existing Bedouin settlements, which would be integrated in the overall planning of the Beersheva metropolitan area. Such a plan would provide a basis for a viable development of the region, as a whole, while maintaining the principles of equality, recognition and justice.
