The International Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) met in Dubai in October 2010 in order review the submissions for the 2010 cycle. They received 384 submissions from 60 countries and singled out LoYAC as a Best Practice. The TAC selected the Best Practices as those who have made outstanding contributions to improving the quality of life in their cities and communities.
The Dubai International Award for Best Practices (DIABP) plays a crucial role in the identification of Best Practices from around the world. Established in 1995, the Award has concluded 8 cycles successfully on a biennial basis.
