Nature reserves and rural natural areas will constitute 60% of the emirate’s total area. Several green corridors will be established to link the service areas, residential areas and workplaces, facilitate the movement of pedestrians, bicycles, and sustainable mobility means across the city, in coordination with developers and government departments. The land area used for hotels and tourist activities will increase by 134%, while that used for commercial activities will increase to 168 square kilometers.
