Similar projects like the Sahara Forest Project?

I was looking into some interesting energy projects using innovative technologies on a global scale and I came across the Sahara Forest Project. A really neat idea and one that should be further explored IMO. I was wondering if anyone knows of similar projects where renewable solutions are the answer to complex multiple problems/issues?
