King, Norwegian crown prince inaugurate large-scale revegetation project in Aqaba

09/09/2017 (The Jordan Times – Jordan):  AQABA — His Majesty King Abdullah and Crown Prince Haakon of Norway opened the Sahara Forest Project (SFP) Launch Station in Aqaba on Thursday. The 30-dunum facility, which is mainly financed by Norway and the EU, is situated outside the port city of Aqaba.  It will employ “proven technologies, put together in a new system. The project only uses sun, saltwater, desert areas and CO2 to produce food, fresh water and clean energy,” according to the organisation in charge of implementing. In remarks to The Jordan Times, Crown Prince Haakon said: “It’s impressive to see the ability of the Sahara Forest Project to produce food, fresh water and clean energy in an arid area. If public and private sectors can combine efforts to upscale the SFP here in Jordan, it could contribute to [efforts aimed to] combat climate change, create green jobs and solve important challenges for next generations of Jordanians.” …
