Dubai's lead in sustainability, renewable energy and Smart City engineering was the emphasis of a group of trainees from the Republic of Kazakhstan throughout their recent expedition to the UAE. The 19 Master of Regional Advancement students from the nation's Academy of Public Management were visitors of the Mohammed bin Rashid School of Federal Government (MBRSG) throughout their week-long keep, with MBRSG laying on a variety of tours and site journeys throughout their visit.
"We were delighted and honoured to be able to hold the group of trainees from Kazakhstan and to facilitate their stay with discussions on their area of research study, which is interested in development. It was a benefit to organize website brows through to reveal them Dubai's functioning practical elements in the locations of sustainability, renewable energy and Smart City engineering. We are really proud of just what Dubai and the UAE has achieved in this round and recognize our responsibility to share the knowledge we have with various other nations that are striving towards the same objectives," stated Teacher Martin Spraggon, Affiliate Dean of Academic Affairs at MBRSG.
The first day of the students' itinerary included a meet-and-greet session at the Embassy of Kazakhstan, with day two seeing the trainees thanks for visiting MBRSG's office, where they got a presentation on Smart Government from Fadi Salem, Director of Study, MBRSG. Included on the early morning of the 3rd day was a see to Shams Dubai, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA)'s smart effort to link solar power to structures, and a visit to Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the largest single-site solar park worldwide based on the Independent Power Producer design. The mid-day of the 3rd day was given over to a trip to The Sustainable City, where they received tour and presentation.
Day four of the itinerary saw the pupils listen to a talk from Dubai Authorities entitled ‘Artificial Intelligence and Smart Systems’ and day five, the final day of scheduled activities, saw them see the recently opened up Dubai Framework in the morning and join a round table conversation on relative issues in the afternoon. Complying with a weekend break of downtime to take pleasure in the city's preferred visitor places and to settle their school outing, the students flew the home of Kazakhstan.
"It was an fascinating experience to host the Kazakhstan pupils throughout their week-long remain, with their go to offering us with the possibility to learn from them as long as they had the ability to pick up from us. For instance, we were able to explain the sustainability tests we encounter from being a country in a location that experiences really reduced rains, while they had the ability to highlight some of the concerns they encounter from being the world's largest land-locked country. We would significantly want to welcome this group once more in the future and have the chance to update them on our developments and to read about the development they have made," said Dr. Scott Fargher, Associate Teacher at MBRSG.
