The Arab Center For Alternative Planning

The Arab Center for Alternative Planning (ACAP), a non-governmental, non-profit organization located in Eilaboun, Israel (Galilee), was established in December 2000. ACAP has developed into a national address that represents the genuine needs and interests of the Arab citizens of Israel on issues of planning, land, housing, and development. In January 2004, ACAP was recognized by the Ministry of the Interior as a public organization with the legal right to intervene in official planning procedures, and file objections to national, district and local plans as an independent legal entity. This was a landmark achievement since ACAP is the first-ever and only Arab organization in Israel that holds recognized official status from the Ministry of Interior as a public organization with the legal right to interfere in official planning procedures, and file objections against any local, regional, or national plan that adversely affects the interests and rights of the Arab minority.
