STRATEGY AND NATIONAL PLAN FOR PASTURES UNTIL THE YEAR 2033
This sectoral document aims to intervene, at national level, on the deterioration of pastoral lands, recovering those already deteriorated, through an action of sustainable development and management of the Ministry of Agriculture of Saudi Arabia.
The Strategy uses an integrated and participatory approach, with a twin-track view to the short and long-term effects on the Saudi Arabia economy, to be applied in a time period of 20 years, up to 2033. This Strategy is strictly connected to the Strategy of Sustainable Agricultural Development up to 2030.
The objective includes: creation of centers for the production of plant seeds suitable for grazing and reduction of plants that require a lot of water; soil preparation; and improvement of the vegetation cover to reduce rainwater leaks.
