KUWAIT CITY, June 10: As part of restoration and greening efforts, Kuwait is implementing the biggest in the world environmental project to re-vegetate 42 square kilometers of land in the north and south of the country, reports Al- Anba daily. The daily has learned from oil sources that the Kuwait Oil Company will be involved in four major contracts for land regreening in the north and south, as essential part of the claims that Kuwait has obtained funding from the United Nations after the Iraqi invasion and forms the final part of the Kuwaiti Environment Rehabilitation Program.

The same sources added the objectives of the project are designed to restore the vegetation cover of approximately 42 square kilometers of land within the Kuwait Oil Company areas in the north and south of of the country by cultivating nearly 10 million desert trees of 12 varieties, shrubs and fungal herbs suitable for Kuwait’s natural environment.

The sources stated that the project is classified among the largest environmental restoration projects and greening of fungal plants in the world. The project is divided into 4 main packages, and the KOC has appointed Worley as a consultant for the project that was launched in January 2023, and two preliminary meetings were held on February 6 and May 29 of this year. The Kuwait Oil Company has set June 18 as the last date for receiving financial offers.

It is worth noting that during the work on the project, areas containing contaminated soil will be targeted by subjecting them to two types of treatment techniques, which are either biological treatment or heat treatment, before returning the soil to its original location and planting it with local plant species that coexist with the prevailing environment and climate in the country.
