(MENAFN - Arab News) Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW), one of the largest global gatherings dedicated to the wider adoption of renewable energies and sustainable development, will welcome more than 30,000 participants from Saturday



During the week-long event, top decision-makers from 172 countries will address some of the world's urgent energy and sustainability challenges, including the economics of renewable energies, the effects of water scarcity, and the impact on the environment and natural resources of population growth



Organizers have charted more than 30 events, including conferences, exhibitions, seminars, panel discussions, receptions and community events

The event will witness high-level discussions to public awareness campaigns



"With the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) as its cornerstone, the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week will set a new benchmark both for participant numbers - 30,000 up from 26,000 last year - and new initiatives launched," WFES Show director Naji El-Haddad said



WFES will be the centerpiece of ADSW. Hosted by Masdar, WFES will stage a three-day conference and large-scale exhibition, with new and expanded features, including the sustainable living expo, the project and finance village, and the green careers fair

Masdar Institute of Science and Technology will display its research projects, industry and government collaborations as well as academic offerings during the event



"Our active participation in the World Future Energy Summit will offer an insight into the research we have been conducting over the years and the milestone success that will take us on a faster growth path," said Fred Moavenzadeh, president of Masdar Institute

The International Water Summit and the inaugural EcoWASTE exhibition also will run along with the event



The first EcoWASTE exhibition is a specialized event for the sustainable waste management and recycling sector, and is set to host 50 local and international suppliers and 2,000 industry professionals, including buyers and technical experts



The Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week organizers have also scheduled a Renewable Energy Jobs Conference, hosted by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), which will gather private and public sector experts to share knowledge, experience and best practice on converting renewable energy investment into secure employment opportunities

In addition, the event will stage the first Blue Economy Summit. Organized by the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Republic of Seychelles, the two-day high-level summit will discuss how to shift coastal nations and marine environments toward sustainable development



In a separate program, GE unveiled its ecomagination Center in Masdar City on Wednesday. Building on GE's eco-magination initiative, a technology platform to increase customer productivity and drive cleaner energy solutions, the new center will showcase GE advanced technology solutions, and offer training on the challenges and opportunities in advancing energy and water efficiency



With a projected 60 percent of the world's population living in cities by 2030, dense urban centers are at the frontlines of addressing sustainable development. As a result, cities must adopt sustainable solutions that reduce their dependency on resources

"Masdar City is setting a global benchmark in resource efficiency through its use of innovative design practices and technologies," said Sultan Al-Jaber, UAE minister of state and CEO of Masdar, after the unveiling of ecomagination Center
