Water demand in the emirate of Abu Dhabi has increased dramatically over the last five years and the main reasons are population growth, economic development and a change in the lifestyle of its citizens. Abu Dhabi Government is working towards increasing water use efficiency in their parks, gardens, and recreational areas. The aim is that, by 2018, there should be a 16% comparative reduction in water use.
In order to achieve this, it will require the use of plants that are more efficient in water use. The Executive Council of Abu Dhabi Emirate has approved a list of native shrubs and trees to be used in landscaping. Barari has produced these plants and made them available for the market.
