HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai launched the award to encourage research centres, individuals, and innovators to find sustainable and innovative solar powered solutions for the scarcity of potable water. Suqia, under the umbrella of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI), is supervising the award, which has three main categories: Innovative Projects, Innovative Research & Development, and Innovative Individual.
“This global award affirms the UAE's commitment to innovation and sustainability, and the search for sustainable solutions for the scarcity of potable water globally. This year’s award is particularly important during the Year of Tolerance, announced by HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE. The Year of Tolerance is an extension to the Year of Zayed 2018, as it carries the values consolidated by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan who extended a helping hand to the needy worldwide to alleviate human suffering, regardless of gender, race, colour or religion. The award reflects our efforts to find sustainable and innovative solutions using solar energy to address the scarcity of potable water,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Suqia.
