MOCCAE's New Digital Service Projects Presented at GITEX GLOBAL 2022
Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) is presenting five of its most important digital service projects at GITEX GLOBAL 2022.
The event is running from October 10 to 14 at Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Center.
The Ministry’s showcase includes the electronic portal for veterinary products E-Vet Gate, Emirates Mine waste collection project, and the Digital Services Platform, the smart Geographic Information System (GIS), and the digital version of the UAE National Red List.
Mohammed Saeed Al Nuaimi, Assistant Undersecretary, Support Services Sector at MOCCAE, said: “Leveraging modern technologies to provide proactive, easy-to-access, fast, and flexible services is one of the Ministry’s strategic goals in line with objective of the UAE Centennial 2071."
The portal represents a new way to inform workers in the livestock sector about safe and approved veterinary products traded in UAE markets, their specifications and uses. This supports livestock development – one of the priorities of the Ministry within its strategic direction to strengthen food security.
The Emirates Mine project collects waste from residential neighborhoods and is part of MOCCAE’s drive to enhance the country’s integrated waste management system and adopt circular economy principles.
Re-launched in its latest version in May 2021, the Ministry’s Digital Services Platform contributes to improving the customer journey, boosting customer happiness, and cutting down on customer costs.
The Platform offers easy access to all services through one interface, and ensuring their internal interconnection and external integration with all relevant government entities.
In addition, it reduces MOCCAE’s operational costs by eliminating all paper transactions and supports the Ministry’s mandates by providing flexible services in accordance with the highest standards of quality, efficiency, and transparency.
The Ministry is also introducing its smart GIS, a collection of interactive digital maps that provides an overview of all locations and activities of livestock, veterinary, agricultural, and fisheries facilities.
The system facilitates the planning, execution, and follow-up of environmental compliance processes, including field audits and inspections aimed at verifying the adherence of the establishments to the provisions of applicable environmental standards, laws, and regulations.
UAE National Red List project
As part of its endeavors to raise awareness about endangered species, MOCCAE is presenting the National Red List that outlines the distribution of animal and plant species in the UAE.
