Dubai has announced a major new quality-of-life strategy to enhance the well-being of the emirate under the guidance of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai.[1]

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai has given his approval to the "Dubai Quality of Life Strategy 2033."

The goal of the strategy is to make Dubai the world's best place to live, work, and travel. The plan includes an integrated roadmap for sustainable urban development in the city for all facets of the community.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed inspected the updated plan for creating model neighborhoods that will encompass Al Mizhar 1, Al Khawaneej 2, and Al Barsha 2 districts in Dubai.

The redevelopment plans include upgrading the existing collector streets and constructing shaded canopies, lanes for bikes and e-scooters, pedestrian walkways, restrooms, and family recreational spaces.

The vision also involves landscaping, and constructing distinctive architectural gateways for each residential community, giving a unique character to every neighborhood.

During Phase 1 of the strategy, more than 3,000 trees and plants will be planted, more than 115 kilometers of walking and bicycle routes will be built, and more than 20 investment opportunities will be provided for the people living in Al Khawaneej 2 and Al Barsha 2.

The proposed reconstruction entails renovating the current collector routes and building family play areas, bike and e-scooter lanes, pedestrian walkways, and bathrooms.

In addition, it provides citizens with investment opportunities, improves public services, and implements the '20-minute city' concept, which guarantees that 80% of basic services can be accessed by citizens in 20 minutes or less using sustainable and soft transportation alternatives.

In addition, more than 30 parks with the new designs will be developed across the emirate within three years.

The Dubai Quality of Life Strategy, which includes more than 200 projects, initiatives, and auxiliary plans, will be implemented throughout three phases, from 2024 to 2033. Culture and entertainment, the natural environment, the urban environment, mobility, society and family, the economic environment, employment and working conditions, education, safety and security, and health are the ten main pillars of the new approach.

It also concentrates on seven important demographic groups: women, white-collar workers, seniors, people of determination, people of color, children, and youth.

The private sector will actively participate in carrying out the plans and programs of the Dubai Quality of Life Strategy. The strategy comprises 100 projects and initiatives that can be carried out in collaboration with the private sector.

Important goals include increasing public service provision by 300% through 2025, guaranteeing complete accessibility for the elderly and people of determination, tripling the length of beaches with night swimming areas by 60%, and creating new beaches that are only for women.

The plan attempts to make places like Hatta, Lehbab, Al Marmoom, Al Lisaili, Al Faqa', Nizwa, Al Awir, and Margham more appealing to tourists. It entails several projects aimed at enhancing well-being, generating family-friendly investment opportunities, promoting local producers and farmers, and protecting archaeological monuments and natural reserves.

A 162% increase in services such as hospitals, schools, parks, and mosques is one of the strategy's aims. The plan also calls for providing homes for nationals in remote areas, enhancing Hatta with hiking trails, upgraded medical and educational facilities, and housing projects for nationals, as well as developing the Saih Al Salam Path with events and investment opportunities.

One of the primary pillars of the strategy is greenery, with a portfolio of projects designed to increase the emirate's overall green space. This entails creating over 200 parks and squares in various locations throughout the emirate, as well as increasing the size of public parks from 23 to 64 square kilometers.

The vision intends to make Dubai a pedestrian-friendly city by 2033 and convert 25% of all trips in the city to self-driving travel, with 45% of transportation coming from sustainable sources.

More than 1,000 yearly sporting, community, cultural, artistic, and entertainment events are part of the strategy. By 2040, there will be a 134% increase in the amount of space dedicated to hotels, tourism, and entertainment.

The plan also calls for a number of youth-focused projects, such as the Children's STEM Museum, the Children's Internet Safety Program, active schools, mental health promotion, increased neonatal screening standards, and youth counseling and mentoring.
