At a recent training event called the “Carbon Ambassadors Programme,” the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) emphasized the role that blockchain will play in future sustainability projects. The training course involves young people in the region to fight against climate change and in protecting the environment.

The training was conducted in the Campus for Occupational and Academic Development, which is operated by DEWA itself, WAM EN reports. DEWA MD & CEO Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer explained what this course was about and what the role of the “Carbon Ambassadors” is going to be.

"The Carbon Ambassadors Programme aims to empower Emirati youth and develop their capabilities to actively support and implement government strategies to reduce carbon emissions, and developing appropriate mechanisms to achieve this objective. Carbon Ambassadors are the next generation of experts and leaders who will implement the ambitious national strategies and plans, and contribute to innovating pioneering initiatives and programmes to consolidate sustainability," he said.

"Training the 4th batch of the programme on blockchain and disruptive innovations supports our strategy to keep the Carbon Ambassadors up-to-date with the latest technologies that can be used to serve the programme. This also supports our efforts to empower young people to benefit from the technologies of the future."

DEWA’s smart approach to the use of emerging technologies, including blockchain, in addressing various issues was recently recognized. This push to using innovations to boost capabilities and streamline processes is an attitude that has been working well for the institution.

As of now, there have been 180 people who have graduated from the training course. This is how Dubai has been leading the charge in terms of using blockchain technology to address the serious problems currently plaguing the world. DEWA is particularly enthusiastic in implementing the decentralized ledger as a means of ensuring efficiency and transparency in its projects.
