In adherence to the directives of the Higher Committee for Enhancing Marine Water Top quality to preserve as well as promote Abu Dhabi's marine environment, the Smart Solutions & Services Authority (ADSSSA) recently consulted with the Atmosphere Firm - Abu Dhabi (EDA) to discuss mutually advantageous jobs and also efforts to enhance the top quality of aquatic water in the capital city. Both events tackled the following steps to create an integrated ecological system to be reviewed at the Globe Top of Oceans readied to be held in March 2019 in Abu Dhabi.
The meeting was chaired by H.E Razan Khalifa Al Mubarak, Secretary General of Atmosphere Company - Abu Dhabi (EAD), and also H.E Dr. Rauda Al Saadi, Supervisor General of ADSSSA. Both sides consented to comply in implementing their joint ecological tasks, consisting of an executive plan for marine environment preservation to be carried out by Abu Dhabi authorities. The plan will cover ecological monitoring, information collection techniques and also strategies, as well as optimization of federal government sources as well as solutions via the Spatial Data Infrastructure (AD - SDI) Program.
H.E. Dr. Al Saadi said: "Both institutions aim to harness the power of spatial data for the preservation of the setting, thus adding to the wise analysis and decision-making procedure within the government. Optimizing information allows local communities to rapidly and also smoothly access the most recent geospatial info and capitalize on the existing infrastructure developed to fulfill the highest global requirements."
H.E. Dr. Al Saadi added that ADSSSA has been taking advantage of all technological sources to sustain the environment high quality sector, according to the Abu Dhabi Government's initiatives to ensure a healthy and balanced and sustainable marine atmosphere and develop an incorporated setting system in Abu Dhabi.
H.E. Razan Al Mubarak said that the conference had actually led the way for concerned celebrations to further boost their joint sustainability efforts, including top quality renovation of the aquatic waters, in the middle of Abu Dhabi's constant growth. She noted that securing the local marine waters is one of the government's main priorities as provened by the passage of vital relevant legislations; execution of around the world accepted ecological tracking programs; enactment of criteria to establish the levels of dangerous impurities existing in the aquatic setting; and stringent environmental assessment and also examination of industrial tasks and their influence on the marine atmosphere."
Considering that 2006, EDA has been implementing a program to keep an eye on the top quality of aquatic water. It has constructed a network of keeping an eye on terminals to accumulate as well as determine samples for analysis of the degrees of nutrients, natural aspects, microbes, heavy metals in water as well as marine debris. It has additionally created an automatic very early caution system that could predict the rate of harmful algal blooms(HAB). The system makes use of automated buoys that collect information pertaining to aquatic water features every hr as well as throughout the week. The information collected is used to create as well as impose policies and also regulations to regulate the effect of human activities on the marine atmosphere as well as shield public health and wellness as well as biodiversity.
The Abu Dhabi Spatial Data Facilities Program handled by ADSSSA aims to assist in the exchange of spatial data amongst stakeholders as well as job to raise the emirate's geospatial capabilities. The program works with various relevant tasks to stay clear of duplication as well as optimize using geospatial resources by the government entities.
