This seven-and-a-half minute video takes a look at efforts in the United Arab Emirates to grow food in a desert landscape. Much of the Middle East imports food due to lack of water and arable land, but these efforts to find alternative ways to produce food are looking towards a future where population increases outstrip production in the food supply. This story thus highlights how people are starting to address environmental issues in the Middle East. >
