Sector Based Strategic Context and Highlights
Current situation, drivers and Challenges (Where Abu Dhabi is):

  Emirate of Abu Dhabi is currently facing several environmental challenges:

  1- Water:
          As in all arid countries, water is a scarce commodity in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. Abu Dhabi Emirate has less than 100 mm rainfall per year, and a low
          groundwater recharge rate of less than four percent of total annual water used. The water is mostly saline and brackish ground water, with only three
          percent fresh water. There are no reliable, perennial surface water resources.
                                y                   g
          Abu Dhabi currently has one of the highest per capita water consumption rates in the world. Rapid social and economic development over the last four
          decades has led to water scarcity, groundwater depletion, and potential for pollution. (especially nitrates from the extensive use of inorganic fertilizers)
          Groundwater depletion- The groundwater level in Abu Dhabi Emirate has declined significantly because of uncontrolled drilling of wells. Although the
          climate has become increasingly arid over the last 1000 years, the exponential reduction in groundwater levels over the last years is largely caused by
          an increase in human activities.
          Pollution of groundwater-Nitrate and Chromium occur naturally in the groundwater at levels that exceed drinking water standards. Nitrate from inorganic
          fertilizers is also the main pollutant of fresh groundwater. Nitrate levels exceed drinking water guidelines for a bulk of the groundwater. Exposure to high
                                                 risk.
          levels of nitrate represents a health risk Desalinated sea water is now the main source of drinking water
          Unsustainable water consumptions-Abu Dhabi Emirate’s daily water consumption rate of 550 liters per person is one of the world’s highest domestic
          water consumption rates. Saline groundwater has increasingly been used for irrigation. Soil salinity has increased to the extent that, in many areas, only
          a few salt-tolerant crops are now grown (i.e., Rhodes grass and dates). Excessive and improper use of inorganic fertilizers by farmers has also resulted
          in widespread nitrate leaching and contamination of the groundwater.
          Capacity Building: As part form increasing the capacity building in the water sector EAD has signed an agreement with Arab Water Council to host the
                         Academy.                                             leaders,
          Arab Water Academy The Academy will reach the executive leaders managers and senior professionals with the essential new perspectives on –
          demand management, cost recovery, institutional reform, integrating the water sector with non-water sector public bodies, and with private sector
          bodies, and with NGOs to protect the environmental services of water.
          Water policy in the Emirate has principally emphasized increasing supply rather than efficiency gains through improved demand management. Water
          consumption is heavily subsidized and is projected to almost double by 2015 if water continues to be provided free of charge or at low cost to the
          consumers.
          The Emirate’s desalination industry can produce around 750 million cubic meter per year, but this is an extremely costly and a energy consuming
          process. This, almost total reliance on desalination for drinking water carries high risks. There is therefore an urgent need to develop alternative,
          strategic water resources in case of emergency.
          Since starting the enforcement of Law No. (6) for 2006 and it by-law, water consumption in Western Region has been decreased by about 16% due to

2 - Atmosphere:

        The oil and gas industry is the main source of air pollution, followed by the power and transportation sectors. Sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides
        (NOx) and particulate matter (PM10) are the air pollutants causing the most concern locally. All three substances pose a health threat as excessive
        exposure may lead to respiratory complaints and lung disease.

        The air quality in Abu Dhabi City is generally adequate. Traffic congestion, however, has caused nitrogen dioxides levels to exceed air quality
        guidelines in the outskirts and centre of the city. In addition, in the absence of a clear air quality management strategy, air quality may deteriorate in
        the surrounding industrial areas, such as Musaffah and Mafraq.

        Climate Change- The global mean temperature is rising because of emissions of greenhouse gases, mainly from fossil fuel consumption. UAE has
        one of the highest per capita emission rates in the world. Climate change may affect UAE and consequently Abu Dhabi Emirate by increasing the sea
        level, more flooding and extreme weather. The Kyoto Protocol aims to stabilize the content of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere at a sustainable
        level. As a Non-Annex I country under the convention and the protocol, UAE is not required to reduce its GHG emissions, however, many initiatives
        are being implemented to reduce these emissions on voluntary basis, among them is the implementation of projects within the Clean Development
        Mechanism and the use of renewable energy technologies.

        Ozone Layer- The ozone layer has been reduced by on average 3 percent since 1980 and an ozone hole is created over Antarctica during spring
        every year. Due to the Montreal Protocol and its amendments consumption of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODSs) is being phased out globally. But
        because these substances are very stable, their concentration in the Atmosphere continues to rise. Ozone will probably peak within a few years. The
        ozone layer is expected to recover significantly between 2050 and 2075. The UAE became party to the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the
        Ozone Layer and Montreal Protocol on Ozone Depleting Substances in December 1989. UAE also became a party to the amendments of Montreal
                    2005.      UAE,
        Protocol in 2005 The UAE as an Article 5 Country (includes developing countries) is in the process of phasing out consumption of the following
        ozone depleting substances:

                    I.      CFCs:50% by 2005 (accomplished) and 100% by 2010
                    II.     Halons: 50% by 2005 (accomplished) and 100% by 2010.

     Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center
        AD Waste Management Centre is the main outcome of the Waste Management Higher Committee, which was formed by the Executive Council. The
        centre establishment decree was approved by the Executive council in September 2007 ( 1-29/2007).
        The Centre started its duties in February 2008 after the appointment of the centre acting manager based on the waste management executive
        committee recommendation. An international consultancy company (SMEC) was assigned to support the centre in executing its main duties:
                Develop a waste management strategy which conforms with AD Emirate Master Plan 2030
                Review and assess the current situating of the waste management in the emirate and identify the gaps
                Provide the necessary solutions for all waste streams (treatment and disposal facilities, regulations, guidelines, database, etc.)

     Abu Dhabi Waste Management Program
       Currently, hazardous materials (including radioactive materials) entering Abu Dhabi emirate are monitored at six entry points, as well the storage
       facilities of these materials in the emirate. However, lack of a unified federal system for the control of entry of hazardous materials into the country has
                             EAD s efforts.
       been a challenge to EAD’s efforts

       An estimated 2164 tonnes of municipal waste are generated daily in Abu Dhabi Emirate. The amount of waste generated by an average Abu Dhabi
       household is not being tracked, and there are only estimations available on how much waste arrives at the transfer stations. A rough estimation
       suggests that every day around 2.3 kg of waste are thrown away in Greater Abu Dhabi Area for every inhabitant. This is much higher than the OECD
       countries' average of 1.54 kg per inhabitant per day.

       Construction and demolition waste- The current construction boom generates large quantities of waste and the amount is likely to increase. Industry
       insiders expect a 25 percent yearly increase in construction activity in the Emirate over the next three years as Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA) is
       targeting the development of approximately 100 new hotels in the Emirate over the next decade. The majority of excavation materials are used for
       landscaping and land reclamation on-land and in coastal areas. Waste from demolition can contain hazardous substances such as asbestos, paints
       and others, depending on the materials used when constructed. Construction waste can contain glues and solvents and waste from equipment
       maintenance such as oil filters, which poses a risk to the environment and human health

       Hazardous wastes are residues or ash containing substances that are harmful to health or the environment. Most of the hazardous waste in Abu
       Dhabi    Emirate is generated by the oil industry, non-oil industry, agricultural sector and by households. While the Environment Agency has taken
       steps to manage import and export of hazardous substances, little attention has been paid to separating hazardous waste from municipal waste.
       Hazardous waste in municipal solid waste (MSW) was estimated to about 3100 tonnes per year. It is estimated that 20-30 percent of the hazardous
       waste, about 620-930 tonnes per year, could be collected for separate processing. If we assume that the Emirate’s population increases at about 3.5

       Medical Waste- In 2004, the Emirate produced an estimated 10 tonnes of infectious medical waste per day. Two private companies used non-
       incineration techniques to treat most of it. The performance of these companies has been below international standards.

       Pesticides                                                           Al Ain
       Pesticides- Pesticides inventories received from Abu Dhabi and Al-Ain municipalities indicate that Abu Dhabi Municipality had no stocks of obsolete
       pesticides, whereas the latter had about 1900 kg and 2170 liters stored at one location. A separate inventory received from Al Ain Municipality
       indicated that some pesticides purchased over the years 2002-2004 were not used. However, the expiry status of these materials was not provided.
       There is no information on pesticides piling up in private farms. Additional quantities of obsolete pesticide stocks may be held by importers and
       retailers of pesticides, but there are no estimates of these at the present.

Sector Based Strategic Context and Highlights
       Hazardous wastes from the oil and gas industry- such as drill cuttings and sludge, are temporarily stored at a facility in Ruwais. Due to the lack of
       treatment facilities, oil companies, who are the largest producers of industrial waste in the Emirate, are planning to establish waste treatment and
       disposal units in the near future. The new waste disposal facilities to be used by all ADNOC companies are currently in the commissioning phase.
       ADNOC as well as individually operating oil companies comply with ADNOC-wide Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) procedures. The Supreme
       Petroleum Council (SPC) HSE department is in charge of following up the implementation of these procedures.

       Waste water- The growing population of the urban agglomerations of Abu Dhabi and Al Ain is challenging the sewerage system capacity. Most of the
       urbanized areas are served by sewerage system, although septic tanks still serve a small percentage of the population. In most areas the sewerage
       system is combined with the irrigation network. The predominant challenge in the hot and dry climate of Abu Dhabi is odor control. The problem is
       tackled with a combination of techniques, such as injecting oxygen into the pumping stations and installing chemical scrubber deodorizers.

4- Land use change:
       Increased soil salinity and habitat degradation - The abstraction of ground water reserves has led to precipitous declines in water quality and
       quantity. At the same time, inappropriate irrigation techniques have increased soil salinity. Plants more tolerant of saline conditions are replacing those
       that are less tolerant with the overall result that ecosystems are becoming less diverse and further agricultural uses will be curtailed. Extensive areas
       of habitat have been destroyed as dunes and beaches are mined for sand or graded to make way for shorefront hotels, leisure facilities and
       homes.                                                        input.                                             source,
       homes Intensified land use practices require more energy input Since fossil fuel is the predominant energy source CO2 emissions increase and so
       does the Emirate’s contribution to climate change.

       Growth in population and consumption -The Emirate’s population has increased dramatically over the last years, from 942,463 at the census
       undertaken in 1995 to 1,591,000 in 2003 and an estimated 1.85 million in 2005. Population growth entails a corresponding demand for housing. The
       government has met this demand by constructing apartments. The Department of Social Services and Commercial Buildings, otherwise known as the
       Khalifa Committee, has completed more than 6,000 projects throughout the capital at an estimated cost of AED 26 billion/$ 6.7 billion US. These

       include about 74,000 housing units.

       Unsustainable cultivation, overgrazing and coastal development- Despite having a highly arid climate, the Emirate has made increasing the area of
       arable land a high priority over the years. Cultivated land areas have increased twenty-fold in the past 30 years, to around 750 km2 in 2003. There are
       now more than 25,000 farms in the Emirate and the agricultural sector consume about 1949 million cubic meters water annually. Overgrazing is an
       increasing problem. Traditionally pastoralists were nomadic. Today, water is widely available from boreholes, and herders can afford to import
            l     t    fodder for their livestock. A a result, l

        Important coastal and inshore habitats include: Salt-flats or sabkha, Sand dunes, Beaches, Mangroves, Tidal inlets, Seagrass beds, Coral reefs.
        Marine habitats in Abu Dhabi are subject to extreme environmental conditions. In addition, human development and pollution put pressure on the
        coastal zone. This has led to significant habitat degradation, fragmentation and loss. There are currently three marine protected areas in the Emirate.
        The character of the Emirate’s landscapes is overwhelmingly determined by their aridity. Rainfall is low and erratic everywhere in the Emirate,
        reaching a maximum at about 15 centimeters annually in mountainous areas. These areas support the highest diversity of terrestrial species and are
        dissected by many wadis that may contain surprisingly lush vegetation. There are also numerous permanent streams and rock pools providing natural
        freshwater habitats that are rare elsewhere. Man-made habitats include oases, of which the most important is the Liwa Crescent complex, farmland,
        forestry plantation and urban areas. These account for a very small proportion of total land area. Most natural vegetation comprises various kinds of
        grass and sedge, dwarf shrubs, perennials and annuals. Some habitat types, such as sabhka and mobile sand dunes, generally have extremely
        sparse vegetation cover. Trees and large shrubs are uncommon and do not normally form continuous woodlands or forests. Notable species are ‘ghaf’
        Prosopis cineraria, an impressive tree that forms distinctive groves in dunes in the eastern part of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and ‘ghada’ Haloxylon
        persicum, a shrubby tree found in one specific area south of Abu Dhabi city. The stands of ghada are the only ones known from south-east Arabia and
        are considered of outstanding conservation importance.

        Invasive Species- Humans have deliberately or accidentally moved tens of thousands of kinds of organisms around the world. Deliberate introductions
        include crops, ornamental plants, domestic livestock and pets. Many of these generally survive if they are actively cared for. However, some may
        adapt well to new areas and develop self-sustaining populations. A proportion of these may become serious pests, having a major economic impact
        and sometimes devastating effects on native biodiversity.

        Threatened Species- The Emirate of Abu Dhabi’s native fauna and flora comprise a wide range of species well adapted to the harsh, arid
        environment. Paradoxically, adaptation to this environment often makes species highly susceptible to various forms of disturbance. Many plants are
        very    slow    growing      and     may    take    a  long     time    to  recover      from    the   effects    of   overgrazing    or     trampling.
        Most animal species naturally occur at low densities, making them particularly susceptible to hunting but also habitat degradation and, in the case of

        Coastal and marine ecosystems of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi support a wide range of animal, plant and algal species. There are also a number of
        offshore islands, ranging in size from a few square meters to some 350 square kilometers. The coastal sabkha, which integrates in places with inland
        sabkha, extends for over 300 kilometers along the coast and is the best example of this landform type to be found anywhere in the world.

       particularly in the near shore areas where the reduction in water quality has impaired natural processes and the productivity of coastal ecosystems.

       Over fishing-The majority of commercially exploited bottom dwelling species and the most important surface dwelling species are being exploited well in
       excess of sustainable levels. Some stocks have been depleted by 80 percent over the past 30 years. A large proportion of catches is composed of
       immature fish. Furthermore, the reproductive capacity of the most important stocks has been impaired because adult stock sizes have been reduced
       below                   levels.

  7- Create a society with increased environmental awareness and action:
       In the words of His Highness the Late Sheikh Zayed, “Conservation of the environment is not and must not be seen as a matter only for Government or
       officials. It is something that concerns us all.” In line with this view, the Agency works to educate and motivate a wide range of groups, from other
       government agencies to higher education institutions, to media to diving clubs and religious groups. Public awareness efforts include:
             – Producing videos and books that personalize the wildlife experience for children and adults.
             – Conducting campaigns for fishermen in multiple languages such as Arabic, English, Urdu, and Malayalam.
             – Offering experts to speak to government and private sector groups and the media.
             – Conducting targeted campaigns like the ‘Green Hoteliers’.

       Abu Dhabi has been blessed with enormous oil and gas resources, but also renewable energy resources such as wind and sun. The world’s global
       energy needs will be hydrocarbon based far into the future, but more countries will seek to diversify their energy mix. With the recent launch of the
       Masdar alternative energy initiative, the Emirate is poised to respond to this need and diversify the UAE’s own energy and technology offerings,

  Drivers:
       Discovery of oil in the 1950s dramatically transformed UAE’s economy into one of the most prosperous nations in the world. Today the UAE is the
       second largest economy in the GCC after Saudi Arabia.

       Abu Dhabi holds over 90% of the UAE’s oil reserves and produces over 85% of its oil.

       The UAE has one of the most liberalized business environments in the region with a highly developed infrastructure. The government pursues an active
       policy of diversification giving special incentives to companies investing in the non-oil sector. The government’s diversification drive has provided
       enough impetus to non-oil and gas sectors. Tourism, real estate and finance are receiving strong government support and encouragement.

            Government s
       The Government’s continued commitment to support the private sector and comfortable macro economic scenario devoid of political tensions have
       resulted in UAE being awarded a credit rating of A2 by Moody’s.3

       The rapid economic development and population growth have put increasing strain on the environment of Abu Dhabi Emirate.

       In the coming years, it is essential to accommodate the growing population and rapid economic growth in a sustainable way so that we preserve the
       natural environment and protect human health.

              comprehensive urban plan to guide the evolution of Abu Dhabi to the year 2030, and to create clear recommendations on the most effective
              regulatory and institutional framework to manage urban development in Abu Dhabi into the future.

 P i it Definition
    EAD will endeavor to improve both the quantity and quality of water resources in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, by addressing water supply and
    demand needs; and by protecting human health through reducing exposure to contaminants in water resources.

 Current situations (Where Abu Dhabi stands now)
 1. In 2005 EAD was assigned total responsibility for groundwater management. The law No. (6) for 2006 which has been issued in March 2006 given the
    responsibility to EAD to control the groundwater well drilling.

 2. Established groundwater monitoring network: an emirate wide initiative to collect and collate quality and quantity data consisting of 700 wells, 240 out of which
    have sensors and loggers and 85 wells with GSM cards.

 3.
 3 The groundwater level in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi has declined significantly because water consumption has increased dramatically over the last 20 years and
    groundwater withdrawals have been uncontrolled.

 4. Well drilling and permitting system is an ongoing process and its aim is to control unplanned new water wells drilling, and conserve valuable groundwater
    resources.

 5. Pilot project for irrigation with saline groundwater with Root Hydration System, is currently being conducted. And the first phase was completed in October 2007.
    The second phase will be completed by the end of 2009 2009.

 6. Abu Dhabi has one of the highest (third) per capita water consumption rates in the world consumption after the US and Canada.

 7. Water consumption rate currently at 26 times the renewable supplies. The agricultural sector accounts for 58% of water consumption in Abu Dhabi. The forestry
    sector accounts for 18% of total water consumption & is growing at 26%.

 9. Current information on water resources is being enhanced by EAD (in 2006) through an initiative to map and develop a comprehensive Water Database for the

 4. Sector water use is currently under stress. The agriculture and forestry sectors use the bulk of available water. Unplanned and uncontrolled groundwater
    withdrawals now total over 2.5 billion cubic meters per year. As a result, groundwater levels and quality are declining in many areas.

 5. Increasing supply rather than managing demand- The water policy in the Emirate has been largely based on supply rather than demand management. Abu Dhabi
                                                                            sector.
    relies on expensive desalination plants to supply water to the domestic sector

 6. Lack of regulation and control results on current problems- A lack of regulation and control of water resources development in the past is largely responsible for
    the water current poor situation. Since no single authority had the mandate for water resources management, water resources development has been largely ad
    hoc and unplanned, and duplication of efforts has led to wasted resources.

 7. Issues with fragmented ownership of jurisdiction on demand and supply controls of water.

 8. The increase in reuse of treated wastewater in landscaping, green areas, foresters, road verges, and rehabilitation of natural vegetation cover.

 Contribution to the Abu Dhabi Policy Agenda
 EAD’s water resource management contributes to the following policy drivers and strategies from the policy agenda:

 1. Clarify regulation and enforcement- The agency is developing standards, roles and responsibilities throughout its environment, safety and health functions, to
    ensure protection of people and the environment and enable the private sector to fulfill its responsibilities. Among key regulatory priorities are the prevention of
    water pollution, air pollution and the responsible management of agrochemical use.

 2. Data Collection- Across all functions, the agency is improving its ability to collect data reliably and consistently. Even where work is more developed, new data is
     required. For example, elements of Abu Dhabi’s ecosystems are known superficially and qualitatively (e.g. species, distribution) but further data will be captured
     to make sound decisions on management in the future.

 3. EAD is forming Emirate Environment protection Policies- Emirate environment protection policies will define standards, monitoring and enforcing in the
     following key area:
    Water: Protection of marine and freshwater environments; discharge standards; water reuse, recycling and conservation; irrigation; groundwater resource
     protection.
    One of the most immediate needs is to develop monitoring for baseline and ongoing assessment, given the data on water sources and water use are not readily
     available in transparent and consistent ways

 4 Build on Recent Achievements in Sustainability- Treated wastewater is reused for irrigation of over 30 million palm trees as well as for agriculture and

    landscaping.

 Background information of trend analysis including benchmarks

 1. Integrated management of water resources means that all the different demand centers are considered together. Water allocations and management decisions
     consider the effects of each use on the others. Integrated water resources management is therefore a systematic process for the sustainable development,
     allocation and monitoring of water resource use in the context of social, economic and environmental objectives

2. The Environment Agency UK has a duty to secure the proper use of water resources in England and Wales. They monitor water in the environment and issue
    'abstraction licenses' to regulate who can take water from the environment and how much they can take. The Agency also has a 25 year strategy for Water
    Resources to meet the needs of both the environment and society.

3. The Environment Agency UK is the statutory body with a duty to secure water resources in England and Wales. Water resources strategy for England and Wales
    (2001 - 2026) considers the present and future needs of both society and the environment and the potential effects of climate change and changing social values.

4.The UK strategy covers the following broad policy areas: Water quality in the environment; Water supply; Water demand management and efficiency; Regulatory
   framework; Climate change adaptation and mitigation. There may be specific policy initiatives under each of these broad headings, contributing to the
   intermediate outcomes and overarching aim. This includes diffuse pollution, drainage, rainwater harvesting, consumer education, carbon foot-printing.

 Priority Code        EAD - 02                     Priority        Improve Air Quality


Priority Definition:
   Air quality management aims to protect human health and environmental resources through monitoring of air pollutants from fixed and mobile sources and
   through implementation of relevant laws and regulations to improve air quality.

Current situation (Where Abu Abu stands now)
Current situation (Where DhabiDhabi stands now)
                     (                        )
1. UAE has one of the highest per capita CO2 emission rate in the world

2. Air pollution guidelines exceeded for few substances. The oil and gas industry is the main source of air pollution , followed by the power and transportation sectors.
    SO2, NOx and particulate matter are causing particular concerns. SO2 pollution is mainly a problem in Medinat Zayed, Habshan and Ruwais. Pollution levels in
    these areas are either close to or exceed air pollution guidelines. NO2 levels have exceeded hourly exposure air pollution guidelines in parts of Abu Dhabi City,
                 Ruwais.                      high,                                                                                                             Emirate,
    Al Ain and Ruwais There is a relatively high naturally occurring level of particulate matter in the air exceeding the air quality guidelines in most of the Emirate
    namely in Mafraq, Shahama, Samha, Sas Al-Nakhl and Al-Ain.

3. EAD is currently in the implementation phase of the Abu Dhabi Air Quality Monitoring and Management project comprised of 10 fixed and 2 mobile air quality
   monitoring stations connected to a central processing and modeling unit. This comes as part of the Air Quality and Noise Monitoring and Management Strategy
   developed by EAD.

4. Hourly data are being collected about the state of the air quality across the Emirate. Further EAD is in the course of populating the emission database and
   connecting external air quality networks operated by third; governmental and private; parties to its central processing unit in order to identify all possible sources
   of emissions and enable it to perform dispersion modeling and scenario settings as well establishment of baseline and measuring improvements / deterioration in
   the air quality as Abu Dhabi develops.

5. Some industries have Continuous Emission Monitoring Sensors installed and they report their readings periodically to EAD as permit conditions .

6.Ambient air quality standards and limits exist. Currently being reviewed in the EHS Framework.

    vehicles and industry against an approved action plans endorsed by the members and the Council.

8. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) as alternative fuel in vehicles initiative is currently being implemented on the local level.

9. Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) as fuel in vehicle and industry is currently being implemented on the local and federal level. (Fuel introduced in July 2007 , but the
    ultimate Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel will be produce in January 2012).

10. EAD plays a supporting role in management of the ozone depleting substances and greenhouse gases to assist the Country to meet its obligations under the
   endorsed international conventions where applicable.

11. A preliminary noise survey has been conducted in Abu Dhabi Island and Musaffah area.

12.                                         studies.

3. Over the past 20-30 years most attention has been focused on the mitigation of air quality impacts mainly through legislation and changes to technology. In
   mitigating these impacts, little or no consideration has been given to impacts (beneficial or detrimental) on climate. These two policy areas have largely developed
   separately from one another. Several different types of mitigations measures can be broadly identified and categorized as Conservation, Efficiency, Abatement,
   Fuel switching, Demand management and Behavioral change.

4. In May 2003 the EU Biofuel Directive came into force, which requires Member states to set indicative targets for the use of biofuel in the transport sector by 2005
    and 2010. The Directive includes ‘reference’ targets of 2% biofuel use by 2005 and 5.75% of energy content by 2010.The biofuel are going to have important role
                                                                    reduction.                   sector,                                     or,
    in UK and Europe meeting its commitments for Co2 mission reduction In the transport sector biofuel can be used in their pure form or more commonly as a
    blend with petrol and diesel (typically less than 5%.The principle fuel types are biodiesel, bioethanol and biogas).

5. Whilst European aerosols are abated, concentrations elsewhere in the world continues to rise, so the spatial pattern of these trends is quite complex and there
   remains uncertainty over the impact of these changes on climate.

6. UK emission projections suggest that by 2020 there will be a much larger number of sectors that control the majority of emissions, because emissions from many

Priority Definition:
Priority Definition:

     Climate change is a global issue that affects all countries. The Kyoto Protocol aims to stabilize the content of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere at a
     sustainable level. Under UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol UAE is a Non-Annex I country and thus, it is not required to reduce its GHG emissions, however, many
     initiatives are being implemented to reduce these emissions on voluntary basis, among them is the implementation of projects within the Clean Development
     Mechanism (CDM) and the use of renewable energy technologies

Current situation (Where Abu Dhabi stands now)
Current situation (Where Abu Dhabi stands now)

1.   The UAE’s ratification of the UNFCCC commits it to submit National Communications on national programs and measures to respond to climate change.

Challenges:

1. Arid regions such as the UAE are sensitive to global climatic changes and the effects they produce.
2. The IPCC has determined that temperatures in the Arabian Peninsula region could increase by 1ºC to 2ºC by the 2030-2050 time period, while precipitation levels
   could significantly decline.

Background information of trend analysis including benchmarks

1. The UAE compiled its first-ever inventory of greenhouse gas emissions for the year 1994.
2. Net carbon dioxide-equivalent emissions for 1994 amounted to 74, 436 Gg.
3. The main gas emitted is carbon dioxide (60,246 Gg), which constitutes more the 81% of net CO2-equvivalent emissions.
4. Energy production and consumption is the dominant source of GHG emissions in the UAE.
5. Energy-related CO2 emissions from fossil fuel production and combustion are 60,246 Gg – about 95% of the CO2 emission total. The energy sector also emits the
   overwhelming share of all other GHGs such as methane and nitrous oxide. When combined with these other emissions, the energy sector accounts for about
   95% of the CO2-equivalent total.
6. Industrial processes account for about 4% of CO2-equivalent emissions, almost all of it in the form of carbon dioxide.
7. Waste management activities account for about 3% of CO2-equivalent emissions, virtually all of it in the form of methane.
8. Agricultural production accounts for about 2% of overall CO2-equivalent emissions.

Priority Definition:
       y
Priority Definition:

1. Waste and waste treatment contribute to a number of environmental problems, for example emissions of greenhouse gases, heavy metals and other
   environmentally hazardous chemicals. If not properly handled, landfills will leak and contaminate groundwater, gases evaporate and contribute to global climate
   change, and toxic fumes will escape and threaten the health of people.
2. Setting the general policy and the necessary regulations for waste management will ensure sound management of wastes by all sectors.
3. The Waste Management Higher Committee, established by the EC in 2007, has established through EAD, Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center to develop
   Emirate wide solutions to the priority waste issues.

Current situation (Where Abu Dhabi stands now)
Current situation (Where Abu Dhabi stands now):

1. Abu Dhabi Emirate faces many challenges concerning waste management (see challenges).

2. As a first step towards solving the waste management issue and defining roles and responsibilities of EAD and other concerned parties, including the regulatory
   authorities and the private sector, Law No. (21) of 2005 concerning Waste Management in Abu Dhabi Emirate was issued.
3. To facilitate implementation of the Law and strategy, and to further enhance waste management in the Emirate, a Higher Committee was established by the
   Executive Council in May 2007. This committee is chaired by EAD and comprises members from relevant concerned Authorities in the Emirate.
4. The EC also approved the establishment of Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center, which started operation in January 2008 and drafted a waste management
   strategy for the emirate. The ADWMC will handle hazardous wastes (including medical wastes) and pesticide management, and will cooperate with the
                                       f                        f                     f    Center was sent to the Executive C
   Municipality on the management of household wastes. A draft law on establishment of the C                                Council
5. EAD as the competent authority for waste management in the Emirate will be responsible for policy and regulation approval with emphasis upon EHS
   management systems and benchmarking against international practices.

•    EAD is continuously researching and evaluating regional and international best practices in terms of Environmental Sustainability. Appropriate best practices are
     incorporated into EAD’s strategy to improve its operations.

•     Waste legislation in England and Wales is driven by the need to manage waste safely and effectively, and the international commitments and undertaking,
     p          y            p
     particularly in the European Union.
•     The principal directive controlling waste management throughout the European Union is the Framework Directive on Waste. The provisions contained in the
     Framework Directives are implemented into law by the Environmental Protection Act 1990, as amended by the Environment Act 1995, together with a number of
     Regulations on various aspects of waste management.
•    The strategy, together with guidance to planning authorities, implements for England and Wales the requirement within the Framework Directive on Waste, the
     Hazardous Waste Directive and the Packaging and Waste Directive to produce waste management plans. It is also a strategy for dealing with waste diverted
     from landfill in England and Wales, as required by the Landfill Directive.

•   EAD is committed to protect and conserve the environment, and to protect and promote human health and safety for all inhabitants of the Emirate. The
    continuing UAE economic growth and modern lifestyle lead to higher consumption of hazardous materials. In recognition to that fact and the risks that
    hazardous materials pose to human health and the environment, EAD started the control and monitoring of Hazardous materials entering Abu Dhabi Emirate
                                                                                                         EAD s
    (i.e.; through land, marine, and air) in April 2003 after Abu Dhabi Customs Department requested EAD’s contributions on release operations of Hazmat
    shipments.
•   comprehensive management of hazardous material in the emirate will provide the highest degree of protection for the society and the environment from the
    dangers posed by such materials, through stringent controls.
•   Through the establishment of radioactive monitoring gates at point of entries, a first line of defense will be established against disasters by preventing unlawful
    import of hazardous materials.
•   Thorough the development of guidelines, brochures raising the awareness of the public on the hazards in the manufacture, handling, storage, transport,
    processing, distribution, use and disposal of toxic chemicals will in turn reduce the unreasonable risks that might harm them.

EAD is continuously researching and evaluating regional and international best practices in terms of Environmental Sustainability. Appropriate best practices are
   incorporated into EAD’s strategy to improve its operations.
1. To improve the management of hazardous materials in Canada, Environment Canada has put in place an effective system to control the export, import and transit
                                                     points.                                                            releases,
   of such wastes and recyclable material at border points The Canadian System is aimed to reduce pollution by tracking releases providing information of harmful
   substances, establishing guidelines and legislation on hazardous materials and their wastes
2. In implementing the Australian Environment Protection Act 1970, The Australian EPA has developed the Waste Management Policies (WMP) which includes an
   comprehensive framework polices on the use, handlig, transporing, storage, treatment, disposal of hazardous materials. These polices lead to a life-cycle
   maangement of all hazardous materials

UAE is a also signatory of the following international conventions related to hazardous materials.
                g     y                g

Priority D fi iti
P i it Definition:
     Changes in natural habitats and ecosystems throughout the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the UAE are occurring on a larger scale than ever before. Pressures on
     natural habitats come from rapid population growth, urbanization, land exploitation, habitat degradation and destruction, pollution, invasive species and climate
     change. Critical habitats including coral reefs, seagrass beds, coastal, sand dunes, inland and coastal sabkhas, mountains and rocky exposed areas, and
     mangroves are under increasing threat. The Emirate of Abu Dhabi is placing high priority towards developing and implementing integrated approaches to
                                                     sustainability.

1.
1 UK has six priorities to help to achieve the aim for marine biodiversity conservation:

•    Conserve and protect UK and European marine ecosystems and freshwater and migratory fish through sustainably managing them
•    Help the marine fisheries sector to secure a long term sustainable and profitable future
•    Promote good management and governance of waters in Europe and internationally, including maintaining the moratorium on commercial whaling
•    Develop and deliver a Marine Bill
•    Monitor the state of the marine environment and secure appropriate evidence on which to base policies and decision making
•    Strengthen and maintain relationships with stakeholders.

2. In Canada conservation of biodiversity is a priority and biological resources are used in a sustainable manner. Economic and environmental management
    concepts are linked and used to guide and integrate departmental decisions for air, water, land and biodiversity and the goods and services Canada produces.

3. In Australia a wildlife conservation plan sets out the research and management actions necessary to support survival of one or more migratory, marine,

    conservation dependant or cetacean species listed under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (the EPBC Act) which are not
    considered endangered or vulnerable, but would benefit from a nationally coordinated approach to conservation.

4. There has been a growing trend towards the more widespread use of bioregional planning by the States, Territories and Commonwealth since the inception of the
    Interim Biogeography Regionalization for Australia (IBRA) in 1995. The Biodiversity Assessment and several other assessments undertaken by the Audit have
    utilized the IBRA framework and the IBRA sub regions as units for analysis. With each Audit assessment the States and Territories have increasingly committed
    to this bioregional approach for data collection and analysis because of its functionality and veracity for biodiversity conservation planning. Two things have
                  g       pp                                   y                              y             y                y                p      g          g
    emerged from this process. Firstly, the clear benefits of the States and Territories being directly responsible for data collection and interpretation. Secondly, the
    importance of the agreed IBRA framework as a mechanism for unifying both data collection and interpretation to enable continental overviews to be built up from
    local spatially referenced datasets.

5. Formal conservation reserve system (SOE-Western Australia-2007): has the highest levels of long-term (statutory) protection and its management is open to
   public accountability. This public terrestrial and marine protected area system is considered a major strategic component to conserve biodiversity in situ and in
                          objectives.
   meeting sustainability objectives The Department of Environment and Conservation is responsible for the design and establishment of the formal terrestrial and
   marine conservation reserve system in WA. The State's biological survey program provides a basis for the selection of areas for the terrestrial conservation

                        d Behavior Survey 2008 reveals th t overall society awareness stands at 48%
•   Specific awareness programs for students, farmers, fishermen, women, corporate and teachers.
•   Environmental agencies around the world report their own environmental footprint (e.g. paper use, recycled content, energy from waste, greenhouse gas
    accounting, environmental management system etc) to propagate environmental awareness in the general public.

Challenges

1. Lack of environmental awareness related information.
2. Metrics need to be developed for trends across various stakeholder groups.


Contribution to the Abu Dhabi Policy Agenda
EAD’s Priority no. 5 contributes to the following policy driver and strategy from the policy agenda:

    Create a society with increased environmental awareness and action:
    Public awareness efforts of EAD include:
        •    Producing videos and books that personalize the wildlife experience for children and adults.
        •    Conducting campaigns for fishermen in multiple languages such as Arabic, English, Urdu, and Malayalam.
        •                                                                                media.
             Offering experts to speak to government and private sector groups and the media

Background information of trend analysis including benchmarks:
EAD is continuously researching and evaluating regional and international best practices in terms of Environmental Sustainability. Appropriate best
  practices are incorporated into EAD’s strategy to improve its operations.

1. Internal Training by UK Government for Sustainable Development:
        •      Green Ministers provide leadership for sustainable development and greening Government across             departments. But commitment is needed at all
               levels of Government for real progress to be made. A number of key messages need to be communicated;
                                             p g                                   y        g                             ;
        •      There has never been a greater opportunity nor a greater need for a coherent strategy. What is needed is the establishment of more meaningful
               connections between, on the one hand, this investment in learning, skills and regeneration and, on the other, sustainable development and education
               for sustainable development.
2. Create a Sustainable Schools web service with key information, tools and links to organizations and networks that can support schools across all the themes

Contribution to Abu Dhabi Policy Agenda
Contribution to Abu Dhabi Policy Agenda
EAD’s Environment, Health and Safety Management System contributes to the following policy drivers and strategies from the policy agenda:

1. Create the environment, health and safety legal framework-
    The agency is developing a regulatory framework through the EHSMS Law and its Executive Order and a set of Emirate Environment Health and Safety
    Protection policies (EEPPs) and Codes of Practice (COPs). Sector focuses include: Building and construction, Transport, Health, Energy, Tourism sector, Oil and
    Gas and Industry. The EEPPs cover the following issues: air quality, water quality, land quality, noise, waste, hazardous substances, biodiversity, environmental
    and occupational health and safety.

2. Empower Government entities to manage environment, safety and health across all portfolios-
    As regulations are developed the Environment Agency will provide training to support sectors to form their own EHSMS. The Agency will also monitor the
    implementation of EHSMS by all sectors and their entities and will set in cooperation with the higher committee mechanisms for approval, auditing and reporting
    of the EHSMS which will expand environment, health and safety capabilities across the Emirate.

3. Build on Recent Achievements in Sustainability-The following elements will be implemented to achieve the Government’s immediate goals in environmental health

    and safety:
    The agency has launched a comprehensive environment, safety and health management system (EHSMS) that includes the EHS Policy, Codes of Practice,
    EEPPs and Sector Guidelines (EHSMS Manual) in February 2008 in order to facilitate the implementation of the system.

1. To ensure optimal health for employees and the population at large, the environmental management of an enterprise should include the sustainable use of natural
    resources, energy efficiency, waste minimization, cleaner production and the minimization of risks to human health by improving workplace health and safety. It
    should apply an integrated, preventive environmental strategy to production processes, and to products throughout their life cycle. Pollution prevention should
    gradually replace pollution control.

2. The policy should be used to determine specific targets, define processes, assure the financial and human resources necessary to act on health determinants, and
                                environment.
    improve social and physical environment

3. Monitoring should be an integral part of target setting and program development. The key criteria and performance indicators to be used for monitoring and
   evaluating the system should be selected and developed by the key stakeholders.

In addition to consultation with the heads of Government, a due diligence exercise was conducted to consider where improvements could readily be made, and what
    successes had been enjoyed in other nations in improving the effectiveness of comparative Government structures. The process resulted in the Executive
    Council agreeing on six key objectives to guide the restructuring of the Government of Abu Dhabi. The agreed principles are to:
 - Increase efficiency and reduce the cost of service provision.
 - Reduce the level of hidden unemployment and improve the performance of Government overall.
 - Outsource non –core services to the private sector and increase private sector involvement in service delivery.
 - Increase the effective performance measurement evaluation systems in all the Government Departments and entities

- Increase the efficient use of technology as a key enabler in all Departments and Government entities

-   Develop effective performance measurement and evaluation systems in all the Government Departments and entities.

Strategy:

The Executive council has evolved its own functions to give effect to this new direction of Government. Seeking to take on a purely strategic role, the Executive
    Council has itself restructured its processes by establishing a General Secretariat with two new units- Strategic Planning and Performance Management. The
    secretariat is today responsible for dealing with more administrative decisions, with Government Departments also empowered to make certain devolved
    decision.
Three new sectors –based Executive Council Committees- the Economic Development Committee, the Social Committee and the Infrastructure and Environment
    Committee have been announced to improve coordination and deliver more holistic whole of government approach to planning and regulation These
    Committee-                                                                        holistic,                                                     regulation.
    specialized Committees are to be vested with decision making powers at the discretion of Executive Council, and will facilitate coordination between government
    Departments and entities within their respective fields of responsibility. The committee will enable a great coordination of government planning to prevent
    duplication and overlapping of services.
In addition, the Abu Dhabi e – Gov strategy will provide a stronger focus on improving the interaction of residents of the Emirate with their Government. Technology
    will facilitate a more ’customer –centric’ experience for interactions with Government, while delivering services in a more efficient and cost effective way.
    Importantly e-gov will address duplication and fragmentation by enabling cross – Departmental processing of transaction across local, Federal and other

    Government entities in the UAE.

The e- Gov Initiative- Service –Oriented Government in Abu Dhabi:

Improved electronic service delivery and a simplification of administrative processes will transform the relationship between the citizens and residents of Abu Dhabi
   and the Government. The e-Gov initiative will improve efficiency, convenience and service for the entire Abu Dhabi community.

Contribution to the Abu Dhabi Policy Agenda:

EAD’s priority area of Maximizing Effectiveness of Human Capital contributes to the Abu Dhabi policy agenda in the following manner:

The Abu Dhabi Policy Agenda is divided into four priority areas, of which Social and Human Resources is one. The agreed principles relevant to this priority area are
to:
 - Reduce the level of hidden unemployment and improve the performance of Government overall.
 - Increase the rate of Emiratization, in the public and private sector.
 - Outsource non –core services to the private sector and increase private sector involvement in service delivery.

Priority Based Strategic Context and Highlights
 Priority Code         EAD - 13                  Priority     Improve intra and inter departmental communication


Define the priority:
A systematic approach has been established to conduct collaborative stakeholders consultation on EAD developed initiatives. This is done through bilateral
   discussions with EAD key stakeholders and priority based stakeholders discussions. An EAD assessment of satisfaction of its key stakeholders and their
   perception of their relationship with EAD has been carried out.

Current situations (Where Abu Dhabi stands now)

EAD has built a Stakeholders management process to engage all relevant parties in the planning, implementing and evaluating processes

Challenges

1. Limited data and information sharing internally and externally
                                       g         y              y
2. Limited sharing of plans with relevant external entities
3. Lack of integrated planning with other relevant entities
4. Lack of alignment between EAD’s goals, objectives and targets with other relevant entities


Contribution to the Abu Dhabi Policy Agenda:

Improve intra and inter departmental communication priority area contributes to the Coordination part under the Whole-of-Government Initiatives:” The desired
outcome of the reform is a partnership in which the Government provides the public policies and regulatory framework and the private sector participates with ideas
   and additional investment. Together, the public and the private sectors will reinforce each other and work jointly towards the government vision of Abu Dhabi”

And it contributes to the agreed principles are to:

- Increase efficiency and reduce the cost of service provision.
- Increase the effective performance measurement evaluation systems in all the Government Departments and entities
-Develop effective performance measurement and evaluation systems in all the Government Departments and entities.
