The Emirate of Abu Dhabi has instated a number of policies, supported by regulations and decrees, to preserve and improve the environment while addressing its responsibilities towards regional and international commitments. This Sector Paper explores these policies as part of Abu Dhabi’s State of the Environment, which includes a total of nine sector papers, looking at developments and actions that will reshape them and how they are implemented.

First released in 2006, the nine sector papers were revisited by AGEDI in 2009 to address previously identified shortcomings, while further enhancing the knowledge base by increasing the level of more current data and information. The review of these papers aimed to increase access to current information, re-engage stakeholder participation, build the partner network, and catalog all the information and data into a knowledge base that the stakeholder community could access and further develop via the Geospatial Portal.
