The current global crisis has had some positive effects on climate change and reducing pollution, however the concept of pollution is often associated with air, water and land pollutants ignoring the negative effect of excessive artificial light in our lives – known as light pollution.

The built environment is starting to understand the importance of reducing light pollution and promoting lighting that is beautiful, healthy and functional. To this end the Dark Skies All Party Parliamentary Group released their 10 policies. This webinar discusses how these policies and the growing momentum to eliminate light pollution will change how we design such that we have inspiring facades and public spaces whilst protecting the night sky and satisfying the more onerous planning conditions.

Governments across MENA region are increasingly looking to attract private sector investment through Public-Private Partnership (PPP) arrangements. Although PPP’s have been extensively used internationally, their use is relatively new within GGC countries and particularly outside the infrastructure sector.


Whilst PPP offers potential economic diversity and stimulation, it is essential for governments and all key stakeholders involved to be fully aware of the best practices and main pitfalls when considering a PPP procurement route.


Join us for the first in a series of webinars aimed at enhancing your understanding of PPP. This first webinar will cover how PPP procurement differs from a traditional procurement process and the benefits to the Public Sector and/or the Private Sector.
