UAE - Mubasher: Expo 2020 Dubai has selected 20 new innovative projects under the second stream of projects of the Global Best Practice Programme, according to a recent press release.
The new projects are added to the programme's inaugural cohort of 25, which aims to face the world’s biggest challenges and shape a more sustainable future.
The UK-based SafetyNet Technologies, which has designed underwater lights called ‘Pisces’ to attract certain fish and repel others, are among the new projects.
The programme also selected Pakistan's project ‘Goats for Water’, set up by the social enterprise UpTrade to ease the economic marginalisation of low-income and water-stressed rural communities.
Expo 2020 Dubai has supported several initiatives and programmes focusing on improving areas related to the global goals, including the Global Best Practice Programme and Expo Live, a global innovation and partnership programme.
It is noteworthy to mention that in late August, Expo 2020 Dubai has partnered with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to support innovators seeking to improve the lives of people that are facing many challenges.
