“Urban planning is a vital tool to capture the needs of the people, because, at the end of the day, we design for the people.” These were the resounding words said by Dr. Hichem Trache, a well-known advisor of the Urban Planning Department in the region, at last year’s Modernscapes MENA summit. Urban planning continues to be a pillar behind green building design, efficient water management, and the preservation of natural habitats to mitigate the challenges faced by cities facing rapid urbanization.
Here we must place significant importance on the need to reimagine our cities intelligently, ensuring the preservation of both the urban environment and our overall quality of life.
