Dubai Municipality reiterated its constant actions and commitment towards the environment and nature in the emirate in an efficient and effective manner whatever the nature and magnitude of the current challenges are, including those related to the existence of a global challenge that threatens the health and safety of societies by the Corona Virus pandemic, as this comes from its concern to preserve the environment and natural resources for the present and future generations.
