“New Dubai Reef Sustainability Initiative Launched by Hamdan Bin Mohammed through Pilot Modules”

by Dubaiforum

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, has officially launched the Dubai Reef project, a groundbreaking initiative aimed at promoting ecological sustainability in the region. The project, spearheaded by Dubai Can, is set to become the world’s largest marine reef development project, spanning a vast area of 600 square kilometers across Dubai’s waters.

The pilot reef modules, unveiled by Sheikh Hamdan, are just the beginning of a four-year plan to deploy 20,000 purpose-built reef units of varying sizes. Each meticulously crafted module will exceed 400,000 cubic meters in volume, providing a rich habitat for marine life and contributing to the overall health of Dubai’s aquatic ecosystems.

This ambitious project represents a significant step forward for Dubai in its efforts to protect and preserve the natural environment. By creating artificial reefs on such a massive scale, Dubai Reef will not only enhance biodiversity but also support the local fishing industry and promote sustainable tourism in the region.

The launch of the Dubai Reef project marks a historic moment for the city and reinforces Dubai’s commitment to environmental conservation and responsible development. As the project continues to unfold over the coming years, it is expected to have a lasting impact on the marine environment and contribute to a more sustainable future for Dubai and its residents.
