Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The main issue discussed concerns rationale of development of a large city in difficult environmental conditions, as existing on the Rub’ Al-Khali desert in the United Arab Emirates. Geographical conditions: climate, soil, and water supplies do not favour such development. But thanks to solid inflow of money from export of petroleum and Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s (first manager of Al-Ain, and later president of the United Arab Emirates) determination in realizing his vision, Al-Ain City keeps growing. - (BJ)
