Abu Dhabi: One million mangrove trees are being planted in Abu Dhabi to reduce carbon emissions. Environment Agency Abu Dhabi has announced that it is starting a campaign to make the desert green with the participation of the private sector.
The agency also asked the private sector to fulfill its responsibility in environmental protection. Abdullah Al Rumaithi, director of Integrated Environmental Policy Planning, said mangroves are a natural way to prevent carbon emissions. Climate change is one of the major global threats. Therefore, the UAE is one of the first country in the Middle East and North Africa region to sign the Paris Agreement to control global warming.
The UAE is also the first country in the region to announce the Net Zero 2050 plan. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the father of the country, paid attention to this issue in the 1970s and set a good example. The Environment Agency indicated that other rulers are following the same path. Ahead of the UAE hosting the next climate summit, the country is active in preparing an environment-friendly system in all sectors.
