A leading environment agency in Sharjah has rejected the recent findings of the World Bank in its Little Green Data Book identifying the UAE as the "country with the most polluted air". In a Press statement, Bee'ah asserted that contrary to the World Bank claim, the UAE is making remarkable progress towards environment leadership. "The UAE National Agenda which advances the goals of the UAE Vision 2021 aims to achieve such leadership by ensuring a high quality of life for its citizens and residents. This pays equal attention to the environment and the results thus far confirm that the country has undertaken significant efforts to improve the ambient air quality... Accordingly, air quality is one of the leading priorities under the UAE's National Agenda because it is associated directly with human health, the environment and its impact on the economy," said Bee'ah in its statement.
