Abstract

It has become vital to understand the economic, environmental, and social impact “going green” has on the region as well as on the interlinked relationship between sustainable consumption and production. This chapter focuses on Dubai's green growth strategy and the process for anticipating success while comparing its policy and initiatives to other major cities. In addition, the chapter reviews current regulations along with low carbon initiatives as part of Dubai's green, sustainable development. As Dubai prepares for Expo 2020, the city is focusing on generating sustainable, green innovations. Indeed, climate change has shaped the need for cities and countries to be more aware of their surroundings, and Dubai is no exception in developing a fully, sustainable city to become a green, economic leader.
