A project at the heart of the Saudi Vision 2030 program - $10bn investment.
The King of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz, has launched an extensive public works program in the capital, highlighting the kingdom’s leadership in urban planning and environmental management in the Middle East.
This program, based on four development projects including Green Riyadh, aims to make Riyadh one of the most pleasant cities to live in the world. Created within the framework of the Saudi Vision 2030 initiative, these projects are in line with the “Quality of Life” program, and are also in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. They will create more sustainable cities and communities and open the way for urban measures to combat global warming.
Improving the quality of life.
Through the greening of the city, the objectives of this development serve the common challenges of many metropolises in the world: improving the quality of life, the environment, sport and leisure development, health and wellbeing, safety, participation and economic value creation.
The greening initiative will in particular reduce CO2 emissions and temperatures in the city. In addition, the project will encourage the citizens of Riyadh to adopt a healthy lifestyle, which is part of the Kingdom's Vision 2030.
