Dubai Award

The Dubai Award was established in 1995 under the directive of late Sheikh Maktoum Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, during the United Nations International Conference that convened in Dubai between 19 – 22 November. 914 participants from 95 countries met to recognize best practices with positive impact on improving the living environment. H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the U.A.E. and the Ruler of Dubai and H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Minister of Finance and Industry and Chairman of Dubai Municipality have continued to support this Award.
The Award reflects the policy and commitment of Dubai Government and the United Arab Emirates towards sustainable development of human settlements and protection of the environment on the basis of mutual international cooperation.
Best Practices are outstanding contributions to improving the living environment. They are defined by the United Nations and the international community at large as successful initiatives which:
  • Have a demonstrable and tangible impact on improving people's quality of life;
  • Are the result of effective partnerships between the public, private and civic sectors of society;
  • Are socially, culturally, economically and environmentally sustainable.
Best Practices are promoted and used by the United Nations and the international community as a means of:
  • Improving public policy based on what works;
  • Raising awareness of decision-makers at all levels and of the public of potential solutions to common social, economic and environmental problems;
  • Sharing and transferring knowledge, expertise and experience through networking and peer-to-peer learning.
Since 1995, numerous good and best practices have been collected from 140 countries, all of which are documented and disseminated through the best practices database, which is a free online resource.  At each cycle, an independent committee of technical experts (Technical Advisory Committee) identifies Good and Best Practices and prepares a shortlist to be presented to an International Jury for selection of the award winners.  Twelve awards are given each cycle.
