MUSCAT – The launch of ‘Desert Shadows’ is part of the national initiative to plant 10 million wild trees in the Sultanate of Oman. The initiative targets as a first plan a number of areas in Najd and the desert of Dhofar Governorate. The initiative aims to make optimal use of the places near artesian wells, by revitalizing the tourism and economic aspects of those areas, in addition to planting wild trees that suit the nature of the desert.
