The “Rawd Revival Initiative” is one of the initiatives of the QBG, through which it seeks to rehabilitate and develop the vegetation cover in the State of Qatar, which suffers from many threats, such as overgrazing, lack of rain, high temperatures, mining activities, and urbanization, as well as weak land reserves of seeds and propagation of exotic plants.
The initiative is based on the principle of internal conservation, as the campaign rehabilitates some fungal plants in their wild habitats, such as vachellia flava, umbrella thorn, Egyptian thorn, mesquites, and lycium shawii trees, especially in the winter camp areas. The campaign also aims to educate citizens about the need to preserve the environment and to participate in its maintenance, rehabilitation, and protection from deterioration. In addition to maintaining nurseries and valleys, the campaign aims at restoring biological diversity to nature, developing local pastures, and measuring the efficiency of these plants to resist desertification and drought. By involving the local community, we seek to educate citizens about the need to preserve the environment and participate in its maintenance, rehabilitation, and protection from deterioration, as well as educating future generations and introducing them to the types and names of Qatari wild plants. This highlights the need to preserve natural resources from deterioration, which may impact negatively on the lives of future generations.
