Introducing Onwani

Welcome to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi’s New Unified Addressing and Wayfinding System, ‘Onwani’ (‘My Address’).  The  Department of Municipal Affairs in coordination with Abu Dhabi City, Al Ain City and Western Region Municipalities has initiated Onwani, and intends to modernize, standardize and formalize the way places are named and located across the Emirate. These will be in line with international best practices and draw on local culture and heritage in its adoption.
