The first cucumbers grown in the desert using seawater and solar power were served to participants at UN Climate Negotiations in Doha . After a 10 month intense construction period, invited guests enjoyed the first tours of the Sahara Forest Project pilot facility, realised by Yara, Qafco and The Sahara Forest Project, a new environmental solution to produce food, water and energy in desert areas. ‘It is designed to utilise what we have enough of to produce what we need more of, using deserts, sunlight, saltwater and CO2 to produce food, water and clean energy,’ says Joakim Hauge, CEO of The Sahara Forest Project.
