The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has announced a new initiative in a joint effort with Middle Eastern countries to protect the environment and combat climate change.

The Saudi Green Initiative and the Middle East Green Initiative expected to be launched last this year aims to chart a path for the kingdom and the region in protecting the planet.

Both initiatives have ambitious goals including increasing the level of vegetation, reducing carbon emissions, combatting pollution and land degradation, launching the largest reforestation in the world and preserving marine life.

The Kingdom says the initiative creates a roadmap that rallies the region and significantly contributes to achieving global targets in confronting global change.

It says the effort will result in enhanced public health and raise the quality of life for citizens and residents in the region.

“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia recognises the importance of protecting the environment, combatting climate change and facing environmental challenges in the region which have clearly shown in high temperatures, low rainfall, high dust waves and desertification, creating an economic threat to the region.”

Saudi Arabia says it will also hold an annual a Middle East Green Initiative” summit, which will convene government leaders, and separately establishing a non-profit organisation to support and monitor achieving the goals of the initiative.
