Sustainable Development/ Climate Action

   Global warming is causing long-lasting changes to our climate system, which threatens irreversible consequences if we do not act. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has launched several programs for climate changes mitigation, including energy efficiency, 
   diversification of renewable energy sources, CO2 separation, storage and utilization technologies, exploitation of natural gas, and methane recovery and gas-flaring reduction. One of the most ambitious initiatives in the modern history is the Saudi initiative 
   of Green middle east that aims to improve the climate in the region.
