The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is currently home to over 350 million people, and its population growth has been characterised by rapid urbanisation. This is projected to continue, with urban population expected to double from 2010 to 2050, from 200 million to nearly 400 million. This means a large demand for buildings, 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 building globally over the next few years. Green Building Councils in our MENA Regional Network are responding to challenges and opportunities on the ground, ensuring that the region’s buildings ensure a high quality of life for people, minimise negative impacts on the environment, and maximise economic benefits.

Our work

The work led by WorldGBC’s global network is underpinned by our strategy – Sustainable Buildings for Everyone, Everywhere and our global programmes.

Each Regional Network works together towards the goals of our global strategy. The Green Building Councils within the MENA Regional Network accelerate the uptake of our global programmes, and lead tailored regional projects that meet the needs of the local market, helping to achieve sustainable built environments for everyone, everywhere.
