The projects are primarily aimed at boosting the region's environment, water and agricultural systems, according to senior government officials. They added that they will be implemented by the Brine Conversion Company, the National Water Company and the National Center for Vegetation Cover and Desertification Control in coordination with the Saudi Deputy Minister of Water.

They emphasized that these projects will support water and environmental sustainability and improve operational efficiency in water transportation and distribution.
