A Future for Gulf Cities



There is no better place to discuss the future for Gulf cities than in Dubai. This city shows us both what can be done and what must be done. Its growth from a small trading port on the edge of the desert to a global city in just a few decades shows the power of visionary leadership. This gives us hope that this city can, in the coming decades, mobilise the same vision and energy to regenerate itself into a pioneering post-modern city, using its resources and ingenuity to show how to win the coming battle for sustainability to which Maurice Strong refers.
