The UAE is building several sustainable cities that conserve energy and harness renewable energy using technology and architectural designs.
Masdar City was founded in 2008 and embarked on a bold journey towards developing the world’s most sustainable environmental city. Through its smart investments, Masdar is positioned to provide a green footprint for future cities to accommodate rapid urbanization, reduce energy and water consumption, and reduce pollution and waste.
Masdar City also benefits from sunlight. Clean electricity is generated using solar panel technology installed on rooftops and has one of the largest photovoltaic equipment in the Middle East.
The Masdar Institute of Science and Technology is a major innovation platform in the heart of Masdar City, a research university specializing in finding advanced solutions in M.Sc.
One of the aims of Dubai Plan 2021 is to make Dubai a smart and sustainable city. Under this vision, Dubai is building a couple of sustainable cities.
One of Dubai’s sustainable development project which is Desert Rose City
Dubai is building another sustainable city i. Its design, in the shape of a desert rose, would help reduce electricity consumption. It will run on renewable energy that it will produce itself. It would also have a waste recycling facility. 20,000 residential units of Desert Rose City will be for Emiratis and 10,000 will be for expatriates.
These strategies are meant to drive responsible environmental and sustainable development management, and set out goals, targets and implementation strategies designed to further effective sustainable development.
Basically sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
