Extremely arid climate, acute water scarcity, high per capita energy consumption and polluting oil and gas industry present challenges unique to the Arab world. A key component of their strategy towards sustainable development is their approach to building construction since construction and infrastructure development takes a major share of development in many countries like Saudi Arabia, UAE and Qatar.
