Trade and investment links between Qatar and countries in East and Southeast Asia have been steadily expanding in recent years. This trend is likely to intensify in the next decades as the fast-growing economies of Asia will require more hydrocarbons from the Middle East. In this Insight piece, Simona Azzali and Mattia Tomba describe the urban planning process and the construction sector in the Qatari capital Doha, with particular reference to the spatial and social fragmentation of the city. Highlighting the lack of coordination among the entities involved in the planning process, the proliferation of mega projects, and the role of sports in urban planning, the authors look at the Qatari government’s recent push for a more sustainable urban development.
