Director General's Message

H.E. Falah Al Ahbabi

Director General
Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council

Our wise Leadership, through Abu Dhabi Plan, has set challenging targets to achieve comprehensive development goals covering all life aspects across the Emirate. It also requires the effective collaboration of private and public sectors to realise them, and, thus, reflecting the principles that were embedded by our nation's founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. 

Late Sheikh Zayed's guiding principles are timeless - everything he did was aimed at improving the lives of his people without compromising their future.

These principles were crystallised when the Abu Dhabi Government announced Abu Dhabi Plan in line with the vision of our President – H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan – to build a confident, secure society with a sustainable, open and globally competitive economy.

In line with the Abu Dhabi Plan, the UPC launched its website as part of its efforts to achieve excellence in service, and be a leader in what it does best. The UPC designed its new website to give better access to Government services, and improve customer experience using the best information technology and e-Services platforms in line with the world best practices and standards.

Thanks to H.H. Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan – Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces– continued efforts to achieve the objectives of the Abu Dhabi Plan, we are all witnessing the progression of the Abu Dhabi Plan into concrete initiatives and programmes under his careful directions. 

The UPC is working tirelessly to support Abu Dhabi's future growth and evolution into the most sustainable Arab capital of the world through the development of strategic plans, Master Plans, policies, sustainable systems and approval processes it creates, implements and manages.

We are proud of what we have achieved so far, yet we constantly strive to reach new heights of excellence by introducing new concepts, technologies and innovative processes, while always remaining respectful of our proud Arab culture.
