The project has received interest from several local and international stakeholders

QNRF PR 0 4539

While Qatar is one of the world leaders in the production of natural gas, on the downside, it has one of the highest carbon footprints on a per-capita basis.

What is more alarming is that every city in the Middle East region exceeded the levels of safe air quality. Impactful action to improve air quality cannot be delayed as deteriorating air quality is now the biggest environmental risk for early death, and according to the WHO, its hazardous effects on human health are killing seven million people a year.
