UAE Spotlights its Sustainability Journey in The Netherlands

The UAE Pavilion titled “Salt Water Cities: Where land meets sea” at the International Horticultural Exhibition Floriade Expo 2022 (Floriade) in the Netherlands is showcasing how the UAE has overcome the challenging environment of desert and sea to grow thriving, sustainable cities.
 
Mariam bint Mohammed Almheiri, Minister of Climate Change and the Environment, said: “We are honoured to join Floriade Expo 2022 and share the UAE’s sustainability journey. The Pavilion demonstrates how the UAE has adapted to our desert environment and arid climate and how our commitment to conserving biodiversity and championing food and water security is driving socio-economic development through a sustainable lens.”
 
Exhibiting for the first time at Floriade, the UAE Pavilion, which will receive visitors until October 9, explores how the country is tackling the challenges of a landscape where water scarcity, scorching heat and saline soil make typical horticulture almost impossible to achieve sustainably.
 
At the UAE Pavilion, the guest experience begins with a saltwater garden inspired by the circular bio saline agriculture systems created in the UAE. 
 
The exhibition features halophyte plants that can thrive in the UAE’s saltwater environment - Salicornia, quinoa, mangroves, microalgae, and seagrass.
