Video: A new solution to turn the UAE deserts green

A simple mixture of water and clay that transforms dry, sandy soil into lucrative arable land could be the solution to the food crisis predicted in the future.

With the United Nations estimating that agricultural productivity must increase by as much as 70 per cent to feed the expected 9 billion people on the planet by mid-century, Norwegian Firm Desert Control has taken its first step to try and help.

Desert Control is being supported by Expo Live that serves as an incubator for new models and new ideas that have a beneficial social impact.
