About the Future Drainage & Stormwater Networks Abu Dhabi

Due to the region’s unique geographical needs, the GCC has become a world-leader in managing and maximizing their water supply, by implementing new strategies, solutions and cutting-edge technologies. As part of UAE’s Vision 2021, the UAE government has extensive development plans for water, planning to sustainability and efficiently extend or upgrade their water infrastructure, reduce flooding risk, and enhance urban drainage.

As one of the leading cities in the region, the Abu Dhabi Government aims to:
  • Integrate the latest technologies, including Big Data Analytics and IoT to its infrastructure
  • Reduce flooding risk through stormwater management and urban drainage strategies
  • Adequately control and replenish Abu Dhabi’s groundwater levels
  • Maintain and upgrade the existing drain networks on Abu Dhabi island and suburbs
  • Find non-traditional methods of draining stormwater, especially in remote areas,
  • Empowering the private sector, through Public-Private-Partnerships (PPP) to develop sustainable infrastructure that can make use of the ponds created by the collection of excess water

After the great success of the 2018 edition, the 5th Annual Future Drainage and Stormwater Networks Abu Dhabi, is taking place under the patronage of the Abu Dhabi City Municipality, on 29 - 30 September 2019 in Abu Dhabi, UAE, and bringing together key stakeholders to discuss the region’s strategic plans and shape its future.
