The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) has launched an agro-tourism page on the ecotourism UAE application page in a bid to boost agro-tourism and emirates position on the world tourism, ecotourism map.

According to Emirates news Agency (WAM), the page features information on 23 private farms across the country as well as lists of activities available in the area, types of products sold, terms and conditions for visitors, opening hours, location maps, pricing, and contact details.

With this addition, MOCCAE is attempting to connect people with nature, and educate them about sustainable practices, such as community farming.

The Ministry is also working on supporting the UAE’s agricultural sector through raising awareness of the country’s local food produce and quality, as well as highlight its efforts to re-introduce certain crops.
