February 18, 2019

Ajman Municipality and Planning Department has completed all the needed preparations to celebrate the 39th Forestation Week, which will be held on the 25th of February in the emirate of Ajman. Ajman will host one the most important events in the field of agriculture nationwide. This event seeks to increase the growth of green areas, combat desertification, strengthen the agricultural infrastructure, and support positive practices that increase forestation all over the emirate.

 

In this regard, Mr. Ahmed Saif Al Muhairi, Director of Agriculture and Public Parks, asserted that the forestation week will be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Rashid Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of the Municipality and Planning Department in Ajman. His Excellency Abdul Rahman Mohammad Al Nuaimi, Director General of the department will also closely follow-up on the event to ensure that all of the activities receive sufficient support and succeed in highlighting the distinctive projects that have contributed to the growth of green areas in the emirate. This growth will enhance the overall quality of life of the citizens and attract more visitors and tourists to the city where they can bask in the freshness of the healthy atmosphere.

 

Al-Muhairi added that many institutions in both the government and the private sectors will participate in this remarkable agricultural event. He also mentioned that the 39th Forestation Week will mark the opening of several parks, including Al Raqaib Heritage Forest Park, Sabeega Park in Masfout , and Al-Yendeir Dam Park. The week will also mark the launch of Zayed Oasis Project which was organized and executed by  the Year of Zayed Team in the department.

 

Al-Muhairi stressed that the department’s clear vision will ensure establishing a sustainable and modern future for Ajman by boosting the agricultural sector and encouraging practices and projects that achieve the desired goals and accelerate agricultural growth throughout the emirate. He also pointed out that the interest in agriculture is an approach instilled in us by our late founding father His Highness Sheikh Zayed. His Highness believed in the loyal citizens of the UAE and their ability to overcome difficult circumstances and achieve what experts considered to be impossible. Their efforts are what made the deserts recede and the green areas to grow and expand.

 

Al-Muhairi explained that the continuation of the forestation week year after year is the ultimate proof of its success in achieving its pursued objectives. During the past year, several agricultural initiatives and activities were launched in order to consolidate the agricultural values we inherited from our ancestors and encourage the young generation to take more interest in the profession of our forefathers. This current forestation week will mark the launch of many important projects. There will also be many lectures, seminars, and awareness-raising workshops for school students in the emirate to guide them to the correct methods of modern agriculture.

 

Al Muhairi also said that the department is determined to spare no effort in supporting distinguished farmers. Many of those distinguished farmers,  productive homeowners and garden owners will be honored during the 39th Forestation Week in order to motivate them to keep moving forward along their path of excellence and encourage others to follow their example.
