Dubai Municipality amongst world’s five most innovative knowledge enterprises


Dubai Municipality has won the global Most Innovative Knowledge Enterprise (MIKE) award.

This makes it one of the five best institutions in the world in the field of knowledge management and innovation. 

Dubai Municipality won the praise for its commitment to strengthening its innovation and knowledge systems.  It received an exceptional rating in all evaluation criteria of the award.

Dawood Al-Hajiri, Director-General of Dubai Municipality, said, "Our goal is to consolidate Dubai’s position as one of the world’s leading cities by meeting and exceeding global standards. Guided by the vision of our leadership, we strive to reach the highest levels of excellence and promote innovation-driven growth. We are glad that our commitment to innovation has been recognised by this prestigious award. This international recognition will motivate us further to double our efforts to achieve greater successes in the future."

In October 2020, Dubai Municipality won the MIKE Award at the level of the Middle East and North Africa for its pioneering achievements and contributions in the field of knowledge management and innovation.

The MIKE Award is a global benchmarking study that assesses effective knowledge management and innovative practices.
