Saudi Arabia has announced its plans to protect the Middle East from climate change. The Asian country features the largest, driest, and hottest shifting-sand deserts in the world. Saudi Arabia is presently suffering from increasing global temperatures just like their Gulf neighbors.
The Green Middle East and Green Saudi initiatives have plans to cultivate 50 billion trees across Saudi Arabia. This initiative will also help to double the size of the protected areas in the kingdom and as well as make a big drive for green energy that would help decrease carbon emissions across the globe by 8%.
As a leading global oil producer, we are fully aware of our responsibility in advancing the fight against the climate crisis, and that just as we played a leading role in stabilizing energy markets during the oil and gas era, we will work to lead the coming green era.Saudi officials
Saudi Arabia has been experiencing desertification and debilitating dust storms combined with low rainfall. This initiative will be using artificial weather creation to increase rainfall and as well as reviving the Arabian wildlife.
Saudi Arabia has plans to help some countries to install more efficient hydrocarbon technologies that will reduce emissions. By next year, the country will give out more information on the specific strategies and methods of the program.
