Abu Dhabi to Create Sustainable City
On May 8, 2007, The Masdar Initiative officially launched the world's first attempt to create a zero-waste, zero-carbon sustainable city in Abu Dhabi, UAE ('Masdar' is the Arabic word for 'Resource'). The project plans are undertaken by Foster and Partners, who indicate that the project is â€œa new 6 million square meter sustainable development that uses the traditional planning principals of a walled city, together with existing technologies, to achieve a zero carbon and zero waste community.â€ The initiative has been driven by the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company.
