Design an independent and self-sustainable infrastructure for the community, which also supports the intent to enhance tourism around the region – within a site size of between 500 square metres to 10,000 square metres.


Sahara (from Arabic ṣaḥrāʾ, “desert”) largest desert in the world. Filling nearly all of northern Africa, it measures approximately 3,000 miles (4,800 km) from east to west and between 800 and 1,200 miles from north to south and has a total area of some 3,320,000 square miles (8,600,000 square km); the actual area varies as the desert expands and contracts over time. The Sahara is bordered in the west by the Atlantic Ocean, in the north by the Atlas Mountains and Mediterranean Sea, in the east by the Red Sea, and in the south by the Sahel—a semiarid region that forms a transitional zone between the Sahara to the north and the belt of humid savannas to the south.


The Sahara covers a vast area. Often, air has to be used to transport people and materials which is very expensive. Expensive pipelines have to be built to transport oil, gas and electricity from remote areas. It is hard to provide services in remote regions therefore there is often a lack of medical care.

These being a few, there are a lot more possibilities within Sahara and sub-Saharan Africa – we require immediate identification of the challenges and rapid solutions of these problems.


Select a site of the area between 500 square meters to 10,000 square meters in regions within Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Western Sahara, Sudan and Tunisia. Choice of the site is on discretion of the participant(s) .

Note: The site must be justified within at least one of the two A1 sheets.
