Renewable energy will be crucial in constructing sustainable cities; strong family ties will attract residents to cities
The UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure has drafted a number of unified indexes to evaluate the quality of life in the energy and infrastructure sectors, under the framework of supporting the UAE National Strategy for Wellbeing 2031.
The drafting took place during the first remote meeting of the ministry’s National Executive Team of Quality of Life in the Energy and Infrastructure Sectors.
The meeting was chaired by the assistant undersecretary of the Support Services Sector at the Ministry and the chief executive officer of Happiness and Quality of Life, Eng Nadia Musallam Al Naqbi; and the undersecretary for Oil, Gas, and Mineral Resources, Ahmed Mohammed Al Kaabi.
Al Kaabi pointed out that renewable energy will be included in the design and construction of sustainable cities, and is one of the UAE’s key objectives.
Al Naqbi emphasised that the future working system adopted by the team will serve the UAE’s preparations for the next fifty years and reinforce its global position as a leading country in ensuring the community’s quality of life and happiness.
The National Strategy for Wellbeing 2031 aims to promote an integrated concept of wellbeing, thus supporting the UAE Vision 2021 and the UAE Centennial 2071, according to the state-run news agency, Wam.
The strategy aims to focus on strengthening family ties, and improving the quality of life in cities across the country to attract more residents to those areas.
