Saudi-based Soudah Development has signed up as a member of the Mountain Partnership, an alliance dedicated to protecting mountain environments around the world whose Secretariat is hosted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
A company owned by the kingdom’s Public Investment Fund, Soudah will lead the development of a luxury mountain tourism destination, offering immersive cultural experiences and celebration of the natural assets empowering the local and national economies.
The Saudi group joins over 400 global members comprising governments, intergovernmental organizations, companies and civil society groups in a commitment to improving the lives of the local communities, preserving mountain ecosystems and rich biodiversity.
This partnership will allow Soudah to tap into an international wealth of experience and resources, as it develops a regulatory framework to preserve the environment and its cultural and human heritage, in conjunction with its luxury mountain ecotourism project.
Soudah is the first developer from the Gulf region to join the Partnership that was established in 2002.
