More About Urban Planning

Plan Maritime

Abu Dhabi's mainland coastline is approximately 2,435 km long and its waters include around 215 islands and a diverse and rich marine environment, which includes fragile wetlands, mangroves and an internationally important dugong population. These marine areas will become increasingly important contributors towards the diversification of Abu Dhabi's economy, as they will help to attract greater numbers of tourists.

Plan Capital

DPM has developed Capital Plan to optimise the city's development through a comprehensive urban evolution program. In doing so, it is laying the foundations for a socially cohesive and economically sustainable community that preserves the Emirate's unique cultural heritage. This foresight to plan for infrastructure ahead of time is a key example of a visionary governance.

Plan Al Ain

Al Ain is the soul of the Emirate. Its spirit emerges from the unique conjunction of Jebel Hafeet, the nurturing oases and the majestic desert that have sustained continuous settlement over 5,000 years. It now exemplifies both the ancient Bedouin traditions and the modern aspirations of the Emirate.
