As the most precious resource on our planet, water serves as a vital nexus connecting humanity, sustenance, ecosystems, and climate. Yet, we are confronted with formidable challenges stemming from water scarcity. Projections indicate that by 2025, half of the world's population will dwell in regions grappling with water shortages. Hence, this year's World Water Day theme, 'Water for Peace', underscores the imperative to swiftly devise sustainable solutions to water-related dilemmas in the most afflicted regions, ensuring global equilibrium."

Dr. Al Dahak further stated, "The UAE acknowledges the significant global predicament posed by water scarcity. His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, spearheads considerable endeavors to cultivate sustainable remedies for universal access to fresh water, particularly in highly affected regions. His Highness's pivotal role in advancing international collaboration in this sphere is commendable. The recent launch of the Mohamed bin Zayed Water Initiative exemplifies His Highness's commitment not only to addressing water crises worldwide but also to fostering peace and stability for all humankind."

Concluding her remarks, Dr. Al Dahak affirmed, "At MOCCAE, we remain steadfast in our commitment to adopting more sustainable approaches to water usage, particularly through the utilization of modern agricultural technology. We firmly believe that ensuring water abundance and sustainability is paramount to furthering development and prosperity in the UAE. Community involvement is integral to our strategy, recognizing that individuals are at the heart of our endeavors, as water is not merely essential to human existence but also foundational to securing a sustainable future."
