Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan

In an attempt to make up for the lack of natural beauty geographically in Dubai and to improve its ecosystem, Dubai is committed to greening its city. In this Urban Master Plan, Dubai is going to introduce a law that will oblige people who live within Dubai to play an important role in enhancing its greenery. 

Now the question arises as to why Dubai felt the need to implement this law. Let’s give you a fair job. The summer temperature in Dubai is very high geographically due to its desert location. Moreover, the consumption of fuel such as petroleum products and diesel in Dubai is very high, due to which the temperature there rises a lot. 

Keeping all these factors in mind, the Crown Prince has pledged to plant trees within Dubai with the help of the latest technology and other agricultural research centres that will provide people with fresh oxygen and an increase in environmental beauty. Apart from that, these basic reasons for UAE travel will encourage the world to explore it.

Objectives of Urban Master Plan

  • Making up for Dubai’s lack of natural beauty
  • Dealing with climate change
  • A decline in temperature announced
  • Barren and wasteland will be converted into agricultural areas
