During the “Green Saudi Initiative” exhibition, the Saudi National Center of Meteorology reviewed the work it had undertaken in the face of climate change.
The exhibition was launched Sunday on the sidelines of the Climate Conference “Cop27”, which was held in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.
The Center indicated that it had established the Regional Center for Climate Change, the Regional Program for Rain Enhancement, as well as the Regional Center for Early Warning of Sandstorms.
The center also launched a system to monitor dusty and sandy phenomena at the local and regional levels.
One of the most significant initiatives to confront climate change and its negative effects is the Crown Prince’s launch in March 2021 of the “Green Saudi Arabia” and “Green Middle East” initiatives, which affirm the Kingdom’s commitment to international sustainability efforts.
The Kingdom relies on these two initiatives to address climate change and its negative effects.
The Kingdom seeks to raise its capabilities to protect the planet by working to achieve international goals. This will enable it to contribute effectively to combating climate change and reaching zero neutrality by 2060.
This will improve the quality of life and reduce carbon emissions by 278 million tons by 2030.
The Kingdom will also launch the first package of more than 60 projects and initiatives whose investments amount to more than SAR 700 billion. These investments will contribute to the development of the green economy and reduce its dependence on oil.
