CEO at Smart Acres
He worked on the advancement of methods used in desert cultivation.
Abdullah Al Kaabi is a native of Abu Dhabi. Sheikh Zayed’s quest to utilize the desert for cultivation inspired him in the creation of his project which reimagines desert farming. He acquired his knowledge through close study and observation of farming techniques used around the world. He tells youths today that once their dreams are pursued the world becomes a brighter place. His vision became possible primarily because the UAE’s government encourages the private sector to contribute to the domestic economy and thus is supportive of projects such as his.
