Saudi Arabia strengthens its forest defences

The nation intends to accelerate the transition towards green objectives

Forests play a key role in combating climate change in Saudi Arabia by acting as carbon sinks, storing carbon both above and below ground, thereby extracting it from the atmosphere where it would otherwise contribute to the greenhouse effect. This is reported by Arab News.

The National Centre for Vegetation Cover Development and Combating Desertification is at the forefront of the Kingdom's 2030 strategic goals.

The National Centre’s experts seek to raise living conditions by encouraging the rehabilitation of deteriorated habitats and lowering pollution levels. They also aim to safeguard against damaging pests that could jeopardise vegetation and increase resilience to natural calamities.

The Kingdom places a high priority on the sustainable development of its natural resources. A campaign to plant almost 10 billion trees is one of the centre's main activities under the Saudi Green Initiative, which is an important step in the kingdom's efforts to reforest.

Experts believe that involving the public and commercial sectors in promoting vegetation growth and halting desertification highlights the necessity for cooperation in order to accomplish sustainable environmental goals.
