Abu Dhabi Strives to Save Groundwater Resources
Despite efforts to more effectively manage groundwater resources, Abu Dhabi is confronted with increasing water scarcity. This was stated by Shaikha Al Mazrouei, acting executive director of Integrated Environment Policy and Planning at Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD), at a workshop hosted by EAD.
“It is therefore essential for EAD and its partners to manage the supply and demand of groundwater in the emirate through a number of public policies that enable behavioural, structural and technological change to save water,” she added.
EAD has started looking at technologies from around the world that address Abu Dhabi’s specific needs in the efficient management and conservation of groundwater resources. Five different technologies were identified to start with and presented during the workshop held on Tuesday by EAD for policy makers, professionals and academics with a particular focus in water servicing for the agricultural, industrial and residential sectors in Abu Dhabi.
