Dubai launches the world’s first readiness metric for the future
Dubai will assess the preparedness of government agencies for the future.
Dubai has created the world’s first metric to measure how prepared public authorities are for the challenges of tomorrow. It was launched by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, at the World Summit of Governments.
According to the crown prince, the new metric could become a global model to help other governments develop strategies for their nations. It will also help position Dubai as a city that prioritizes well-being, safety and the ability to overcome challenges and seize opportunities.
The new ranking (metric) will take into account 66 indicators in five key areas and was created by the Dubai Future Foundation and the Dubai Government Excellence Program. It will identify areas for cooperation and knowledge sharing among government agencies, resulting in increased efficiency.
As Sheikh Hamdan recalled, Dubai’s government ecosystem is built on continuous innovation, proactive planning, and a comprehensive approach to anticipating future trends. This ecosystem has strengthened Dubai’s position as a leader in future readiness and as a provider of outstanding government services – regionally and globally.
The new rankings will encourage government agencies to create a culture of innovation, excellence and leadership, and encourage a proactive approach to improving preparedness for future challenges. The rating results will be published every two years and will be evaluated by independent global experts.
