DUBAI / WAM
The Dubai Council for the Future of Humanitarian Work (DCFHW) held its second meeting to explore means of accelerating initiatives in the humanitarian field and to examine the current trends and challenges facing the sector globally.
Chaired by Saeed Al Eter, Assistant Secretary-General of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) and Director-General of the Executive Office in Dubai, Chairman of the Council, the meeting addressed the four pillars for achieving growth in humanitarian work, namely the humanitarian media, nurturing young Emirati talents to lead the future of the humanitarian work, identifying and developing adequate technologies for the future of humanitarian works and investing in research and development on the future of the sector.
“Through the DCFHW, we seek to contribute in realising the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to adopt the best practices and to blend them with innovative methods for shaping the future of humanitarian work and for mitigating challenges and threats facing it,” he added.
The Dubai Council for the Future of Humanitarian Work falls under the umbrella of Dubai Future Councils, established with the directions of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Future Foundation, launched the Dubai Future Councils in January as a futuristic platform to build key sectors in Dubai for the next 50 years. The councils were tasked to share knowledge and expertise to find solutions to challenges, launch initiatives and national strategies to create opportunities alongside government and private sector experts.
