Koweït City : planification urbaine et stratégie régionale

Abstract : The Iraqi occupation in 1990–1991 has impacted Kuwait City for years. But, since the end of 2000 decade, the city has entered in an unprecedented development process. Nevertheless, many projects planned have not yet been realised, in spite of the small kingdom assets: its oil fields, its large investment capacity and its highly educated urban elite. The article reviews the projects completed and those under construction, then it analyses the implementation of the urban development plan and the stakeholders involved. The aim is finally to understand Kuwait City’s capacity to insert itself into the city network under structuration along the Southern coastal area of the Arabo‐Persian Gulf.
