Saudi Crown Prince has launched two ambitious programs with the name “Saudi Green Initiative” and “Green Middle East”. Literally, it will turn Saudi deserts into green fields.
1 – Under Saudi Green Initiative, the government will plant 50 billion trees in the region out of which 10 billion trees will be planted in Saudi Arabia.
2 – The initiative will reduce carbon emission by 60% in the region. Moreover, it will reduce the carbon emission of the entire world by more than 4%.
3 – The initiative will also work to increase the percentage of protected land to more than 30%, exceeding the global target of 17% per country.
Further details and the road map of the Saudi Green Initiative will be announced later. The work is expected to start soon.
