What is the Green Riyadh project?

Recognized as one of the most ambitious urban reforestation initiatives globally, the Green Riyadh project aims to enhance air quality and mitigate temperatures within the city. Moreover, the program aspires to promote a healthier lifestyle among Riyadh’s residents. By the project’s completion, Riyadh is anticipated to solidify its position as one of the world’s top 100 most livable cities.

A total of 7.5 million trees are scheduled for planting in significant locations throughout Riyadh, encompassing neighborhood gardens, parks, mosques, schools, universities, healthcare facilities and public establishments. Additionally, the tree plantation plan includes scattering them along streets, roads, vacant lands and valleys.

To date, the project has made progress in five of the seven designated neighborhoods in the city, where the project’s implementation is underway. The neighborhoods include:

  • Al-Aziziyah
  • Al-Naseem
