About img EAD

  • The Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi (EAD) stands as the beacon of environmental conservation in the emirate, vigorously protecting its air, water, and rich biodiversity. EAD’s mandate was initially established in 1996, when the Environmental Research and Wildlife Development Agency (ERWDA) was created by emiri decree. ERWDA built upon the pioneering work of conservationists from the National Avian Research Center, which in turn, was established in 1989 in response to the desire of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan to preserve the emirate’s cultural heritage and in particular the traditions of sustainable hunting. EAD has come a long way over the last 25 years and has matured into the Middle East's premier environmental regulator. Renowned for monumental feats such as establishing the Sheikh Zayed Protected Areas Network and championing innovative conservation strategies, EAD seamlessly blends past achievements with future aspirations. EAD’s unwavering commitment ensures that Abu Dhabi continues to flourish from a harmonious balance with its natural environment. Find out more here.

Climate img Action

  • The UAE faces a multifaceted array of climate challenges. Enhanced extreme weather conditions, diminishing water availability, and threats to biodiversity are among the pressing issues. Particularly vulnerable are the mangroves, seagrass beds, and coral reefs, which are at risk due to rising sea levels. Additionally, fragile desert ecosystems could be severely impacted by even modest temperature increases. Of particular concern is the risk posed by rising sea levels, given that 85% of the UAE's population and 90% of its infrastructure are situated along the coast.

  • Individual action is pivotal in shaping a greener UAE. This includes adopting energy-efficient practices at home, minimising water usage, supporting local sustainable businesses, and actively participating in community initiatives like clean-up drives and conservation projects. Each individual effort counts in the broader objective of sustainability.

  • The UAE has been taking proactive steps to mitigate its carbon footprint, such as the integration of renewable energy sources, the enhancement of public transport systems, and the adoption of green building standards. In addition, environmental projects like mangrove planting and the promotion of sustainable agricultural practices are contributing to carbon sequestration.

  • The UAE confronts a variety of environmental challenges, ranging from water scarcity and desertification to biodiversity preservation. The rapid pace of urbanisation, coupled with an increasing need for sustainable energy solutions, also figures prominently in the country's environmental considerations.
