Dubai to become one of world’s top liveable cities

As the UAE?s urban population is expected to grow to 7.9mn by 2020, and demand for water and energy resources are predicted to double by 2020, experts, together with Dubai Municipality, are prioritising the need for liveability ? economic, social and environmental well-being – in Dubai?s approach to urban planning.

There is an impending population boom on the horizon in the run up to World Expo 2020, which is expected to create 270,000 jobs in the lead up to the event.

The safeguarding of natural assets, sustainable, multi-use infrastructure development and efficient, inner-city connectivity through transport are a few of the themes topping discussions set to take place at the conference this week.
