The Sahara Forest Project

Designed by biomimicry architect Michael Pawlyn, Seawater Greenhouse designer Charlie Paton, and structural engineer Bill Watts, the Sahara Forest Project aims to enable restorative growth in the world's most arid regions.

Developed between Bellona, an international environmental NGO based in Norway and King Abdullah II of Jordan, the project will hopefully first get the go-ahead in his country. The team have even been invited to the country to discuss a feasibility study.

Currently, the project is scheduled to go ahead in 2015, and if it is a success, it will have massive environmental benefits, such as  alleviating food and water shortage, producing biofuels, and contributing to forestation efforts in desert lands.

    dear Sir/Madam
    In my opinion solar and wind energy are great to certain extent but they are costing the tax payers a fortune and they are only supplying energy amount to a drop in the ocean by the name of low carbon energy, I think the only way we are going to make any effect to the climate is to have a system for every home small and cheap enough and easy to install even if it can generate daily.
    Watch this space all I am waiting is some help.
