This is what Dubai will look like in 20 years time

Under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the emirate has seen unbelievable changes in a very short amount of time.

However, His Highness’ vision for Dubai is far from over. In the next 20 years, under a new development plan, citizens and residents will see major changes take place in the city.

“We launched Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan with aims to make Dubai the world’s best city to live in,” Sheikh Mohammed announced on Saturday.

In doing so, public beach areas in Dubai will increase by 400 per cent and 60 per cent of the emirate’s area will be nature reserves, meaning you’ll see a lot more greenery around the city.

Dedicated areas for hotels and tourist activities will also increase by 134 per cent, under the initiative.

“Drawing inspiration from global best practices and adapting them to local needs and requirements, we have created a development model that offers the best possible quality of life and creates the conditions for sustainable prosperity,” he said.

“Our goal is to create a truly inclusive environment that not only meets the needs of Dubai’s diverse population, but also inspires them to tap into their creative and innovative capacities and realise their true potential.”
