Ramat Negev Regional Council (Hebrew: ‎, Mo'atza Azorit Ramat Negev, lit. Negev Heights Regional Council) is a regional council in the Negev desert in Israel. The largest regional council in the country, its headquarters are located on Highway 40 between Mashabei Sadeh and Tlalim.

History

Ramat Negev communities are all kibbutzim, moshavim and community settlements. Revivim and Sde Boker are notable as former residences of Prime Ministers Golda Meir and David Ben-Gurion respectively. Some 6,000 Jews live within the jurisdiction of the Ramat Negev Regional Council.[1]

In 2012, the council approved the establishment of a new community, Ramat Tzipporim, to provide homes for 2,000 Azzazmeh Bedouins living in the region.[2]
