Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk. Unprecedented infrastructure activities, industrialization and heavy traffic are the main threats which increase the risk of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.
Noise-monitoring stations have been installed across the UAE to control the sound level in the cities. Restrictions were imposed on working hours and the type of equipment for industries.
In support of the National Agendas across the GCC countries towards promoting higher quality of life in a cleaner environment, a number of initiatives have been taken place to monitor air pollution and noise levels. Governments’ tightening regulations set grounds for improved air quality and noise control in the Gulf area.
Following the successful launch of the Air Quality & Noise Control Conference last year, the event takes off again in Abu Dhabi on 23 & 24 November 2016. The 2nd Annual Air Quality & Noise Control GCC will gather environmental experts from government, industry, transport, hospitality and healthcare sector. While expanding to the GCC, new topics are going to be discussed, such as indoor air quality, eco-friendly transport, and industrial impact.
The UAE vision and goals by 2021
In support of the UAE National Agenda which advances UAE Vision 2021’s goal of ensuring high quality of life for its citizens and residents in a sustainable environment, efforts have been taken to properly monitor and regulate emission and noise levels throughout the emirates over the past years. It is also anticipated that government limits will be tightened further to encourage cleaner air and improvements on noise control.
