Dubai Municipality and UN-Habitat sign cooperation agreement at WGS2024

by Madaline Dunn

Dubai Municipality has signed a cooperation agreement with the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat).

This agreement is centred on supporting and enhancing the ‘Artificial Intelligence in Dubai: Pioneering Urban Intelligence for a Comprehensive and Sustainable Future’ project. The agreement will be followed by the development of a comprehensive proposal for the project.

This project aims to improve collaboration across several areas of work, including the creation of an AI governance strategy for Dubai’s urban planning and the implementation of AI-driven simulation tools to improve priority areas and optimise urban planning operations and services.

It also aims to enhance the knowledge and expertise of the Dubai Municipality workforce and their capabilities in implementing artificial intelligence techniques within urban planning.

H.E. Al Hajri commented: “We are pleased to sign this strategic cooperation agreement with the UN-Habitat, on the sidelines of the World Governments Summit 2024. This partnership will strengthen urban policies, programs, and the integration of cutting-edge technologies to produce beneficial results, thereby creating an advanced environment for artificial intelligence applications. The objective is to accelerate the resolution of environmental, social, and economic challenges related to sustainable and inclusive urban planning in Dubai.”

Meanwhile, Michal Mlynár said: “We are excited to expand our partnership with Dubai Municipality and support the use of data and AI in advancing sustainable and inclusive urban planning. Digital technology has the potential to reshape the way we envision and build urban spaces. However, we should always put people first and ensure that we leave no one and no place behind.”
