Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd Chair for Urban and Regional Studies

The continuous growth of population brings about a rapid growth of cities, villages and a big demand for services and re-designing of the infra structure. This growth and demand lead to regional development and may negatively impact the environment and natural resources. Issues involved are numerous and interconnected and need to be carefully studied to avoid any unforeseen serious consequences.

HRH Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd took the initiative to establish Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd Chair for Urban and Regional Studies at the Dammam University, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 

The Chair undertakes research and studies in areas related to urban and regional development. This would include studies and research into rural development, housing, services, infrastructure and facilities.

The Chair aims at providing scientific and applied results that would serve the community locally and Kingdom wide.

The Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd Chair for Urban and Regional Studies was officially launched in 2010.


Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd Chair for the Support of Youth Initiatives

Youth are a dynamic and challenging sector of the community and they are continually aspiring to fulfill their ambitions and realize big dreams. They have initiatives that they would like to bring to reality, but in most cases they lack the necessary resources, skills and know how. 

Helping youth to realize their ambitions has always been a challenge. A number of organizations and programs exist to provide help and support to youth but in most cases the help and support have proven to be traditional and limited. In his broad and long experience with the youth, HRH Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd Bin Abdulaziz knew that the help and support provided needed to be based on results of scientific research and studies of youth needs. 

To accomplish this, HRH established a Scientific Chair at Al Imam Mohammad Bin Saud, University, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, under the name of Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd Chair for the Support of Youth Initiatives. 

The Chair was officially launched and organized its first workshop in June, 2011.The Chair endeavors to support youth innovations and develop their skills and creativity.
