Karbala – (iina) In the effort to combat desertification and climate change, the South Green Belt Division, a branch of the Holy Abbasid Threshold, has successfully planted over 200,000 palm trees and various trees in the oases of the Green Belt project. This significant increase in greenery within the project’s oases over the past two years has transformed what was once a nearly desert and neglected land into lush green agricultural areas.
Moreover, not only have the number of trees grown within the project increased, but there has also been a surge in the cultivation of a diverse range of vegetables and trees, exceeding 50,000 in total. This transformation aligns with the goals set by the Holy Abbasid Threshold, revitalising and reclaiming previously underutilised land for agricultural purposes. This initiative holds multiple benefits, including economic, environmental, and climate advantages.
Continuing its commitment to expanding green spaces, the Holy Abbasid Threshold aims to serve both the incoming citizens and the objectives of sustainable development. Additionally, this initiative stands as a dedicated response to the challenges posed by climate change, not only for the region but also for the entire nation.
