The exhibited books also cover the risks facing these species and the efforts undertaken by the state to preserve them and work towards their reproduction.
Moreover, the pavilion provides a comprehensive introduction to the natural reserves in Qatar, which cover a significant part of the local environment, both terrestrial and marine. It also highlights the state’s plans to expand these reserves and work towards their preservation and protection from any damages or encroachments. Additionally, the pavilion showcases all the legislations and laws issued by the state to safeguard these reserves.
The pavilion of the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change introduces Qatar’s eco-tourism destinations. Additionally, it showcases a large and captivating display of the digital environmental library, which features the ministry’s latest publications. The books and publications are presented electronically, making it easier to access and read them accurately through a browsing area.
The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change also offers an enjoyable opportunity for the public through a corner showcasing the best photographs of the local nature. These photographs, captured by the ministry’s lenses and local environmental enthusiasts, include creative shots of birds, marine creatures, wildlife, as well as images of Qatar’s environmental plants.
