    The newsletter covers the broad area of FAO projects in Saudi Arabia. In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, under the FAO Technical Cooperation Programme (TCP), there are three ongoing projects. The project "Strengthening MEWA's Capacity to Implement its Sustainable Rural Agricultural Development (SRAD) Programme (UTF/SAU/051/SAU)" aims to enhance the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture (MEWA)'s ability to implement its Sustainable Rural Agricultural Development Programme (2019–2025). This initiative is being carried out in collaboration with MEWA, Reef, and the National Center for Vegetation Cover Development and Combating Desertification (NCVC). The project comprises nine components, including coffee, beekeeping, roses, sub-tropical fruits, livestock, fisheries, rain-fed cereals, value addition, and natural resources management, which covers forests, national parks, rangelands, and desertification control. Additionally, FAO and the Saudi Irrigation Organization (SIO) are implementing two projects, namely "Promoting Efficient Irrigation and Water Productivity Among Farmers (UTF/SAU/053/SAU)" and "Enhancing National Capacities for Irrigation Management (UTF/SAU/054/SAU)." The overall TCP programme aims to increase agricultural production and productivity, manage natural resources, promote diversification and income generation for smallholders, especially rural youth and women, and enhance capacity for irrigation management by promoting efficient irrigation and water productivity.
