At a glance

Qatar’s agricultural sector has expanded in recent years due to increased food demand as a result of rapid population growth and government-backed initiatives, which aim to enhance food security in the country. Such factors contributed to the expansion of the agricultural sector, which has witnessed remarkable developments, such as the introduction of the Public Private Partnership (PPP) law, one-stop-shop distribution channels, and financial support to further encourage local production. Despite Qatar’s dry climate, the country has been extensively adopting and utilising sustainable and smart technologies, including automated irrigation systems, hydroponics, and aquaponics, to enhance the quality and quantity of fruits and vegetables.
