UAE: Abu Dhabi - Environment

Climate change and global warming, coupled with population growth and increasing urbanisation, are just some of the environmental factors depleting the natural resources of countries across the world and affecting the earth’s natural balance. In Abu Dhabi, where average temperatures run from 22.9°C to 35°C, reaching as high as 50°C in summer months, and where average rainfall is just 81.4 mm per year, environmental protection and sustainability are particularly vital to future growth, and have become key pillars in the authorities’ development agenda. Population growth is expected to put additional strain on food and water supplies in the future as well as increase demand for jobs and housing. This chapter contains an interview with Razan Khalifa Al Mubarak, Secretary-General, Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi.
