Location: Al Baydha, Saudia Arabia
GPS coordinates: 21.144934, 39.394766
Parameters: 90 acres of mountaneous desert revitalized through rainwater retention measures construction.
Prior to implementation: Strategy end method was to passively harvest runoff from flash floods to refill shallow aquifers on barren land for a desertified area.
After implementation: Al Baydha project created an agriculture that increases the land’s carrying capacity & productivity, increases biodiversity, organic matter/soil life, increases water resources, restores ecological function and sequesters carbon. By utilizing currently wasted flood waters and harnessing existing macrocycles, we established perennial ecosystemic agricultures that increase total water resources and convert desert into productive ecology.
