Protecting Abu Dhabi’s Environment and Biodiversity Through a Holistic Policy and Rigorous Standards

In an interview with Global Platform, Razan Khalifa Al Mubarak, Secretary-General of Environment Agency Abu Dhabi, speaks on how the Environment Agency, Abu Dhabi, and its partners work to protect the environment and to ensure sustainable development in the emirate. The issue of water conservation is one of the priority areas for Abu Dhabi – and indeed the entire region, and as a coastal country, marine water quality is vital both from a food security perspective and also from a tourism viewpoint. As the emirate welcomes more industry, the agency is cooperating with key stakeholders to ensure that the environmental regulations are up to par with the type of development that is taking place.

From the very early stage this notion of sustainability and the importance of sustainable development in the development of Abu Dhabi was very much at the forefront of the thinking of the leadership. We work on protecting our air, our land, our sea, as well as working on protecting our biodiversity, both species and habitat, through a very rigorous monitoring and scientific programme, all underpinned by a holistic policy and regulatory framework.
