Dubai Land Department’s announces five pillars in new strategy plan 2026
In line with the adoption of Resolution No. 81 approved by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai, and in line with the strategies drawn by the UAE for the upcoming development in various fields, Dubai Land Department (DLD) launched its new strategic plan and vision, shaping the features and landmarks of its directions until 2026.
Rolling out across three phases, the strategy is the result of continuous efforts by various team members at DLD to ensure the best results that are compatible with current and future global developments and practices. The new strategy also constitutes a qualitative addition that would enhance the contributions of the real estate sector to Dubai’s GDP, in addition to supporting the objectives of the other sectors and strategic directions.
The new strategic plan revealed a number of pioneering and proactive ideas, most prominent of which were five main pillars. The first is a pioneering real estate model, by enhancing the sector’s readiness and sustainability, and ensuring effective governance of the real estate sector. The second pillar is being a real estate innovation incubator by fostering a globally attractive real estate sector and harnessing technology to enable real estate solutions development. The third pillar is a data-driven sector, by maximising the added value of sector data and raising awareness, trust and transparency in the real estate sector. The fourth pillar is Agile DLD, to cultivate a flourishing digital ecosystem, enhance DLD’s operations and improve corporate governance efficiency, and foster partnership with public and private sectors. The fifth and final pillar is Exceptional Journeys 2.0, through which the focus is on shifting to employee-first culture, refreshing DLD identity and enhance its position, and move to a proactive and ‘human’-focused approach.
As for the implementation plan for the approved initiatives, it includes three main stages. The first is the launch of quick-gain initiatives to ensure that DLD adapts to the proposed changes. The second stage is empowerment by working to empower the real estate sector and DLD alike and providing the necessary support to implement the transformation smoothly. The third stage is achieving sustainable impact by expanding the scope of influence to reach a global real estate system.
