Green buildings for everyone, everywhere
The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is currently home to over 381 million people, and its population growth has been characterised by rapid urbanisation. This is projected to continue, with the urban population expected to double from 2010 to 2050. This means there will be an increasing demand for buildings and infrastructure, complicated by the challenges of conflict-induced displacement of people. Yet the MENA region is also set to be critical for the growth of green buildings globally over the next few years.
Organised under the patronage of the Minister of Climate Change and the Environment H.E. Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, in partnership with Majid Al Futtaim, the MENA Green Building Congress 2020 will represent a great opportunity to share the latest trends across the industry internationally and regionally. It will also be a chance to share success stories and discuss the ways we can collectively respond to challenges facing the region. Furthermore, it will highlight means to ensure that buildings provide a high quality of life for people, minimise negative impacts on the environment, and maximise economic benefits.
