Question 1 [40 points]

The loss of trees and other vegetation can cause climate change, desertification, soil erosion, fewer

crops, flooding, increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and a host of problems for indigenous

people. Especially, this is topical in countries with a hot weather, where trees are a vital need. Kuwait

faces problem of missing a sufficient amount of trees because of the high ambient temperatures (during

summer up to 60 degrees). This impacts the air temperature, air quality, the oxygen level, noise, and

many others. Planting trees in a desert or area around is a challenging task, thus, different, and most

promising engineering solutions should be considered under such extreme weather conditions.

a) Follow the 8-step engineering design process to design a solution for the above presented

problem. [30 points]
