Oman Sustainability Week 12-16 March, 2023
We're excited to be joining the Oman Sustainability Week! Join us in Muscat from 12-16 March! Stop by the The Netherlands Pavilion, booth 1710, together with NWP - Netherlands Water Partnership, to learn about smart water management with Sensoterra wireless soil moisture sensors!
The Oman Sustainability Week is aligned with Oman Vision 2040 and the Sultanate’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These SDGs are a call for action to respond to the global challenges that face our world; challenges such as poverty, inequality, protecting the planet and ensuring everyone enjoy peace and prosperity.
These goals are distinct in the fact that they are interconnected - often the key to achieve one goal will involve tackling issues associated with another, and inclusive - that they include everyone without distinction and unite us together to make a positive change in our world and achieve sustainability.
Sensoterra's approach to smart water management, contributes to multiple themes covered in the Oman Sustainability Week, touching on:
- Climate action
Oman’s action plan for combating the effects of climate change is set out in the national strategy for adaptation and mitigation of climate change, which aims to determine the impact of climate change on sustainable development, encompassing agriculture, livestock, ﬁsheries, water resources, coastal areas, infrastructure, industries, bio-diversity, human health and welfare.
- Life on land
The national spatial strategy sets the tone for spatial development in Oman, which places a premium on the protection and conservation of its natural environment, resources and elements of biodiversity. It paves the way for integrated rural and urban development and protection of the environment. To maintain biodiversity, several conservation projects are in place like planting of mangrove saplings, deer numbering project and protection of coastal areas.
- Urban living
Under the national urban development strategy, a comprehensive spatial framework for managing, organizing, and directing high-quality sustainable urban and rural development in the sultanate is designed. To adopt an urban policy that addresses the increase in population and their needs for services, and to prepare development plans for each governorate; the strategy aims to build inclusive, safe, resilient, affordable, and sustainable cities and human settlements.
Meet us in Muscat!
