From Risk to Resilience: Adapting to a changing climate

Prepared for COP28, as a collaborative effort between Marsh and the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), this report provides valuable insights into climate risk identification, adaptation strategies, and resilience measures at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.

Discover how DEWA is leading the way in combating climate change and ensuring the long-term sustainability of renewable energy projects.

The report presents a comprehensive assessment of climate risk and adaptation strategies at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the landmark with a planned capacity of 5,000MW by 2030, plays a crucial role in the UAE's commitment to providing 100% clean energy by 2050.

In this report, explore a case study through three key steps in addressing climate risk and enhancing resilience at the solar park:

  1. Climate risk identification:  Identifies potential climate risks at the solar park through comprehensive data analysis and climate modeling.
  2. Assessed climate impact: Assesses the potential impact of climate risks on the solar park, considering factors such as damage, disruption, and preparedness.
  3. Recommendations on climate adaptation: Understand practical recommendations for the future state of the solar park, including surface water management systems, flood protection, and emergency response plans.
