Oman set to create the largest Oasis Park in the Middle East


The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Through the years, Oman has made giant strides as a nation. The Sultanate’s march towards development is punctuated by milestones of growth, whilst protecting the environment and preserving the natural resources.

With beaches, deserts, mountains, greenery and wadis, Oman is an enchanting tapestry of different terrains. The Sultanate boasts of the fjord-like splendor in the Musandam Peninsula that projects into the Strait of Hormuz and leads to the fertile Batinah coastal region. The plains of Oman slope south-east towards Muscat, through the enormous sandy border of the Rub Al Khali (The Empty Quarter) amidst the mountains to the tropical Salalah.

Oman is indeed Arabia’s best kept secret!

And now the dream is to add the magic of an Oasis Park to this enchanting land.

The beauty and tranquility of natural parks all over the world — from the tropics to the tundra — inspire all. It has motivated O! Millionaire’s environmental initiative to create Middle East’s most significant green space, the Oasis Park in Oman which aims to be a beacon of hope for a sustainable future.

Ralph C. Martin, Chairman, O! Millionaire details, “Oman possesses a very rich biological diversity, blending together separate ecosystems, both terrestrial and aquatic. This multiplicity of ecosystems plays an essential role in the maintenance of environmental services. As a company, we decided to make a social investment, support local efforts, and implement changes as an endowed group to achieve exceptional results that we feel is necessary. Oasis Park is that extraordinary concept that will bring about a positive change. Oasis Park will be a habitat for wildlife, a sanctuary for relaxation and an expanse for food abundance.”

Oasis Park will be spread across an area of 1,200 square kilometers and will host 60 million trees. Once Oasis Park is fully developed, it is expected to contribute to CO2 reduction by 1,440,000 tons approximately and will also witness a reduction of the total annual emission of Oman by around 2.4 per cent. The life sustaining process of photosynthesis, involves absorbing carbon dioxide from the air, thereby reducing the concentration of this greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. Therefore, global warming is slowed down. The autotrophic trees that are planted will provide for Oman’s efforts towards food security and foster intelligent farming techniques.

Ralph. C. Martin says, “In line with the key objectives of Oman Vision 2040, this initiative seeks to protect the environment and conserve Oman’s rich biodiversity. It also aims to contribute towards the country’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint in alignment with the United Nation’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

He adds, “Oasis Park is a bold endeavor to promote conservation, develop sustainable economic opportunity for the country, and support continued research and education. The goal is to take positive steps toward climate change mitigation, carbon sequestration, food security, water security, biodiversity conservation amongst others. As responsible citizens of the world, we must take a stand to ensure that the next generation will inherit a healthy world.”

Basim Al Zadjali, CEO, O! Millionaire says, “Oasis Park is Oman’s answer to the global call for a sustainable future. Oasis Park will be a haven for flora and fauna, complete with clean energy provided by electricity from solar energy and water generated by air machines.

It will preserve the natural resources for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of the present and future generations. The park is set to create running paths and play area for kids. We intend to ensure that the Oasis Park will be a tourism destination in the near future thereby providing employment opportunities to many.”

O! Millionaire through Oasis Park will support broader economic and social development in the country, by generating thousands of jobs for nationals, contributing to the country’s GPA (VAT and profits taxation), raising the Happiness Index of Oman, supporting ESG Initiatives, and promoting Oman as country acting against global warming.

The splendor behind the concept of Oasis Park is that it will be a community contributed initiative. The visionaries behind the concept have made it simple for everyone to be part of this movement. For more information on this initiative, please visit https://omillionaire.com/ website and purchase a green certificate worth OMR 2.5.

Each certificate, which is issued only once, has a unique number which will be tagged to the tree growing in the Oasis Park establishing a personal connection to the buyer.
