  3. 3. INTRODUCTION Dubai is a city in the United Arab Emirates. The emirate of Dubai is located on the southeast coast of the Arabian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country. It has the largest population in the UAE (2,106,177) and the second-largest land territory by area (4,114 km2) after Abu Dhabi. Dubai acts as a region gateway, re-exporting goods from around the world to the large markets of neighbors
  4. 4. Introduction Today, Dubai has emerged as a cosmopolitan metropolis that has grown steadily to become a global city and a business and cultural hub of the Middle East and the Arabian Gulf region. It is also a major transport hub for passengers and cargo. Although Dubai's economy was historically built on the oil industry, the emirate's Western-style model of business drives its economy with the main revenues now coming from tourism, aviation, real estate, and financial services
  5. 5. Introduction As of 2012, Dubai is the 22nd most expensive city in the world, and the most expensive city in the Middle East. Dubai has also been rated as one of the best places to live in the Middle East, including by American global consulting firm Mercer who rated the city as the best place to live in the Middle East in 2011
  6. 6. Recycling system As part of its efforts to introduce advanced systems in waste management, Dubai Municipality is all set to implement the ‘Duty of Care’ system, which requires waste management companies to follow a new set of regulations starting from the collection point right up to the disposal units or treatment facilities.
  7. 7. Recycling system The implementation of the programmer is part of the authority’s move to ensure a clean and environmentally friendly city that matches global standards. by 2018, 25% of the waste generated in Dubai would be recycled, and by 2026, they would be able to recycle 98% of the waste
  8. 8. Green space In Dubai there are many green spaces and one of the most famous green space in the middle east is Alnakhla island ( Palm Island ) . The Palm Islands are an artificial archipelago (islands) in Dubai, off the coast in the Arabian Gulf. They will establish three islands, Each settlement will be in the shape of a palm tree, topped with a crescent. The settlements will have a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment centers. The Palm Islands will add 520 kilometers of beaches to the city of Dubai.

Roads Five main routes (Sheikh Zayed Road), (Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road), (Dubai-Hatta Highway), (Dubai-Al Habab Road) and (OudMetha Road) – run through Dubai, connecting the city to other towns and emirates. Additionally, several important intra-city routes, such as (Al Maktoum Road/Airport Road), (Baniyas Road), (Sheikh Rashid Road), (Al Dhiyafa Road now named as the 2 December street), (Jumeirah Road) and (Al Khaleej/Al Wasl Road) connect the various localities in the city.
