Dubais 5 year plan is to exceed the world average of grren space per person for a large international city. Dont know exactly what the figures are but they announced 9 new massive public parks to start this month as well as 5 jogging and community sports centres in the burbs.

You must remember that dubai does not pump is treated sewerage into the sea like most western counties or recyle to drink like in europe. Instaed its treated and then used to irrigate the hundreds of sq kilomiters of landscaping and green areas. And as the population grows so does the amount of TSE(treated sewerge and effulant) that needs to be used so therefore they need to create more green areas to use it up.
