CRUISE COMPANY, SAHARA FOREST PROJECT JOIN HANDS FOR REVEGETATION OF DESERT AREA

Costa Group, through its Costa Crociere Foundation, signed an agreement with the Sahara Forest Project Foundation to join forces to revegetate the desert in Jordan with sustainable technologies, according to a joint statement. Guests on board Costa Cruises and AIDA Cruises ships calling at Aqaba will be able to taste vegetables produced using saltwater and solar power in the desert. Currently, it operates a  three-hectare commercial size facility 12 kilometres north of the port of Aqaba, combining saltwater-cooled greenhouses, solar energy panels and different techniques for outdoor revegetation in dry areas, according to the statement. The governments of Jordan and Norway, the EU Commission and USAID funded the facility. (ICE AMMAN)
