Abu Dhabi: The Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi, (EAD) in partnership with the global energy company ENGIE, today announced the launch of the second phase of the “Blue Carbon” Environmental and Social Responsibility project, during an event led by Her Excellency Dr. Shaikha Salem al Dhaheri – Secretary General of EAD. After a successful pilot launch in 2020, the second phase of the project involves using highly innovative drone planting technology to sow mangrove seeds.

Her Excellency Dr. Shaikha Salem al Dhaheri said: “Mangroves play a critical role in our fight against climate change. These carbon-rich forests that dot the coastline of Abu Dhabi are key to stabilizing our environment and preserving the natural habitat of several species. The Blue Carbon project is one of its kind in the region and I am delighted that it has advanced to Phase II, following its very successful pilot launch in 2020. Rebuilding and restoring an ecosystem that resiliently protects our coast will support the sustenance of mankind while consequently combatting climate change.”....
