Sahara Forest Project
The Sahara Forest project aims to address five global problems: reduce green house gas emissions, increase fresh water supply, support transition from fossil fuels, develop sustainable food production and grow biomass.
The project uses available resources and proven technologies to create a virtuous circle of freshwater and energy production in dry, sunny low level areas. A feasibility study has been completed and work is underway to develop the demonstration centre. The SFP is a joint venture between Exploration Architecture Ltd, Bellona Foundation and Bill Watts.
The SFP vision is the realisation of projects for re-vegetation through profitable production of food, fresh water, biomass and electricity. This is focused on the use of bringing seawater into deserts to create synergistic, agricultural and industrial relationships for sustainable development to currently unproductive land.
