The Middle East Green Initiative is a catalyst for action
driving climate efforts in the region and beyond
The importance of reversing the effects of climate change is tangible across the Middle East and North Africa, where the impact of rising temperatures is already affecting livelihoods and opportunities.
By working together, nations can scale up climate commitments and deliver against clear targets designed to protect the planet and ensure a positive future for coming generations.
The Middle East Green Initiative will work to:
Plant 50 billion trees across the Middle East (including 10 billion at home in Saudi Arabia)
Through afforestation, restore an area equivalent to 200 million hectares of degraded land reducing 2.5% of global carbon levels
Contribute to reducing carbon emissions resulting from hydrocarbon production in the region by more than 60%
