The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has a desert climate, with very mild winters and very hot and sunny summers, in which the humidity of the Persian Gulf makes the heat unbearable. The annual precipitation is almost everywhere below 100 millimetres (4 inches), and is concentrated in the winter months.
Seems local knowledge of the UAE is essential when making any recommendations.UAE appropriate environment for beekeeping, By Wam

I take it that you will be heavily irrigating what you plant in some form or fashion due to your location. From the Buckthorn family, botanical name: Ziziphus spina-christiIn, also called Christ's thorn jujube seems to be well adapted to your area. Brazilian pepper tree may be another. In another life, I spent a year deployed to that area as a military aviator and I was very impressed what farmers were able to grow using walk-line pivots and other forms of irrigation. If you are able to irrigate and with proper soil preparation you might be able to grow Tulip Poplar, Black Locust, Korean Bee Bee Tree, and perhaps others but until they become well rooted would require close and constant care. Even when well rooted, irrigation would be required. Not sure if that would be practical or economically feasible for you.Aside from flowering plants, what other plants would be best pollinators?
