Tourism of Saudi Arabia
Minister of Tourism of Saudi Arabia In line with the aims of Vision 2030
In line with the aims of Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia launched biodiversity initiatives to breed and protect endangered species. By 2030, The Kingdom will be conserving a total land area 11 times the size Belgium and has committed to protect 20% of its terrestrial, coastal, and marine environments. Combined with a partnership with the Middle East Green Initiative to plant a further 40 billion trees across the region, the project will restore an area equivalent to 200 million hectares of degraded land, representing 5% of the global target of planting 1 trillion trees.
Further demonstrating the Kingdom’s leadership and commitment to the sector, Saudi Arabia has implemented key global initiatives to drive forward a sustainable future. Announced by HRH the Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman during the Saudi Green Initiative in October 2021 and at COP 26, the Sustainable Tourism Global Center is a multi-stakeholder action platform that will accelerate the tourism sector’s transition to net zero emissions, as well as drive action to protect nature and support communities.
The Tourism Panel on Climate Change (TPCC), a new tourism and climate science assessment and measurement STGC initiative, modeled on the IPCC – Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – will advance climate resilient tourism and demonstrate the important role of the travel and tourism sector in contributing to better human development, and the imperative of responding positively to the existential climate crisis we face.
