10:00 AM VISIONARY THINK TANK: How Do You Expect Housing And Residential Infrastructure Projects In Your Region To Be Funded Over The Coming Years?

MENA’s region future projects pipeline exceeds USD 3.7 trillion. Construction and civil construction projects alone account for USD 2.4 trillion, according to a recent report by MEED Projects Statistics. US$2 trillion of mixed used development projects (apartment, villas and houses) are in the planning stage across the Middle East. This points to an increased appreciation of the opportunities emerging in the Middle East among both domestic and international investors.

This session will discuss the different approaches for funding and financing the housing and residential infrastructure.
  • Which investment partnering model should you consider to be most effective in delivering your housing and residential projects
  • How innovatively can different levels of government, developers, and other non-governmental entities work together for acquiring funds for a project
  • How is technology disrupting the way developers and the investment community operates
  • What role will private capital play in funding the growing housing and residential infrastructure and changing needs of developers?

10:40 AM KEYNOTE ADDRESS: How Is Sharjah Integrating Sustainable Solutions, Technology And Innovation To Maximise The Production Of Reused Water With Effluent Treatment Plant

SHUROOQ and Besix have begun work on a waste-to-water plant in Al Saja’s area in Sharjah. When completed in 2020, it will produce 5,000m3 of water per day mainly for industrial purposes from Al Saja Sewage Treatment Plant’s (STP) treated effluent. This investment will also enable the plant to maximise the amount of reused water produced, doubling the capacity from 30 million litres of high-recycled water per day to 60 million litres per day, mainly for industrial use.

Key Question: What are the benefits of the STP?
  • Industrial usage
  • Landscaping
  • Sustainable alternative to desalinated water
  • Uses four times less energy consumption in the production process
