NCVC Showcases its Initiatives at Saudi Green Initiative Forum
The National Center for Vegetation Cover Development and Combating Desertification (NCVC) is participating in the second edition of the Saudi Green Initiative Forum and Exhibition, held in Sharm El-Sheikh in conjunction with the UN Climate Summit COP27.
The NCVC’s participation in the Saudi Green Initiative Forum and Exhibition, held under the slogan "From Ambition to Action", stems from its pioneering role in implementing the initiative of planting 10 billion trees in Saudi Arabia.
The initiative was launched by His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, last year, within the framework of the Saudi Green Initiative.
The Saudi Green initiative aims to improve the life quality and preserving the environment for future generations in the Kingdom.
During the SGI, the Vegetation Center shares its role as a main reference leading the initiatives and efforts in the field of afforestation, by providing knowledge, in-depth expertise used in the development of vegetation cover and combating desertification.
Through its participation at the exhibition launched in conjunction with the COP 27, NCVC allows visitors to discover the seven NCVC-led initiatives, notably the 10-billion tree initiative, over visual and interactive media, in addition to a prototype of the Wadi Lajab project located in Jazan.
Dr. Khalid bin Abdullah Al-Abdullah, CEO of the National Center for the Development of Vegetation Cover and Combating Desertification, will be a key panelist at a panel discussion titled “Greening the Desert: Technology-powered Development of Vegetation Cover”.
The panel will be held on the first day of the SGI Forum on November 11. The panel will address the importance of technological solutions such as artificial intelligence and machine solutions in afforestation processes.
