FUJAIRAH, 22nd October, 2023 (WAM) – The concept of sustainability in the Emirate of Fujairah has become the focus of interest for institutions and entities which adopted initiatives and mechanisms to deliver ambitious goals that contributed to efforts to reducing the effects of climate change, in alignment with the UAE’s hosting of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28) in Expo City Dubai.
In this context, the Fujairah Science Club (FSC) is adopting several plans to support innovations in the technology sector by inventing a new mechanism to deliver medicines via drones as part of efforts to reducing carbon emissions. The FSC has also invented a new solar-powered mechanism to manage water resources to water livestock in a way that preserves the amount of drinking water and its sustainability by harnessing modern technologies without depleting water resource. In addition, the lighting system in the club’s external facilities is completely powered by solar energy.
The “Bayti” platform of Fujairah Cultural and Social Association has implemented a set of initiatives to support the emirate’s sustainability efforts. The platform launched the “Ozone is My Responsibility” document and the “Friend of the Environment” document, which encourage members of the society to conserve natural resources and protect environmental gains.
The platform also organises dialogue sessions on the importance of the ozone layer, water resources, agricultural wealth, and wise use of plastic bags.
The Fujairah Adventure Center has implemented new mechanisms to support the emirate’s sustainability efforts by adopting a system to reduce the use of electrical energy and replace it with solar energy in the Adventure Park facilities, specifically in the tourist huts, which consume zero electrical energy. The Center also made efforts to develop and sustain the mountainous environment through the use of environmentally-friendly materials to stabilize the soil on mountain trails, in addition to promoting the concept of environmental preservation for the category of adventurers and amateurs at the Center’s sites across the emirate, including mountain trails and recreational sites, through media and awareness campaigns.
