  • The Kuwait Municipality’s coordination committee approved the establishment of the Urban Observatory for the country, a specialized center for collecting and analyzing data and information in various areas of urban development.

Engineer Saud Al-Dabbous, the Director General of Kuwait Municipality, announced the preparation of seven sites for catering centers across all governorates to bolster food security in the country. These sites range in size from 500 to 1,000 square meters. Additionally, four storage locations have been prepared, with areas ranging from 10,000 to 100,000 square meters.

The committee approved the establishment of the Urban Observatory for the State of Kuwait, a specialized center for collecting and analyzing data and information in various areas of urban development.
