Muscat: The Sultanate of Oman is taking part in Expo 2023 Doha Horticultural Exhibition, held under the slogan “Green Desert, Better Environment.”
Oman’s pavilion showcases 1,600 specimens of trees and plants transported from the Botanical Garden and planted on the designated land in Oman’s pavilion.
The pavilion constitutes an embodiment of different types of Omani environments. It offers a simulation of terraced farming environments at Al Jabal Al Akhdar in Al Dakhiliyah Governorate, the Dhofar monsoon environment and the semi-arid environment. It also comprises some perennial trees in Oman, including the frankincense tree and the perennial baobab tree found in the Dhofar Governorate—the last extension of such plants in the Arabian Peninsula.
The pavilion allows the visitors to learn about the engineering heritage of the centuries-old Omani aflaj irrigation system, which reflects the values of cooperation, tolerance and dialogue among local communities.
The visitors are also given a treat through exhibits of the Omani Botanical Garden and a fountain made of high-density Peridotite rocks. The rocks are common in all parts of Oman and they are known for their property of capturing and storing carbon dioxide gas, which contributes to protecting the ozone layer.
The exhibition, in which 68 countries and international organizations participate, focuses on several themes, including sustainability, environmental awareness, technology, innovation and modern farming. – ONA
