More than fifty nine million human beings are living withinside the six member international locations of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) (the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia). Saudi Arabia alone is domestic to more or less 67% of the GCC’s general populace. The boom of the populace in many nations worldwide has certainly been modest, or even dropping, with the excellent exception of Qatar. This can be genuine for a few international locations however without a doubt now no longer the case for all international locations, as many nations in Asia and Africa are experiencing speedy quotes of populace boom and urbanization. However, in a 2015 record, approximately 82.2% of the GGC international locations’ population stay in city regions, with 100% in Kuwait and Qatar. This makes the GCC most of the maximum urbanized areas in the arena. Demographic modifications and the surge of immigrant employees interested in the location because of the employment possibilities and confirmed monetary fulfillment in latest many years have each contributed to those traits [1].

Fishing and pearling at the coastlines were the number one manner of subsistence for citizens of those international locations for a good deal of their history. Coastal regions also are in which the bulk of the location’s earliest cities sprang up, organizing connections with change routes to India and beyond. Oil became located withinside the 1960s, and considering that then, the financial system has flourished, and stages of prosperity have expanded. The GDP in step with individual withinside the GCC international locations is currently most of the maximum withinside the world. In line with its monetary boom, the location’s populace has expanded significantly over the beyond few many years, and the silt towns advanced into industrial metropolitan regions related to the arena financial system. Urbanization as a worldwide fashion has additionally continued withinside the location during the last numerous many years, and this fashion is predicted to hold in addition into the future. It is, however, essential to regulating urbanization to prevent the emergence of squatter settlements, city environmental demanding situations, and different sorts of externalities [2].

High quotes of urbanization most of the GCC international locations have propelled their primary metropolitan regions to the vanguard of worldwide progress. These international locations are now no longer simply locations to stay, construct products, and get matters accomplished; they now play a pivotal position in shaping and influencing political and social interactions on many fronts, from figuring out the fulfillment or failure of latest production strategies to introducing novel processes to mounted requirements and aesthetics. Within those international locations, towns have emerged as key political and monetary hubs which might be essential in figuring out the location’s imaginative and prescient and figuring out the rules that form its future. Urbanization additionally has implications for environmental safety and long-time period sustainability primarily based totally on revolutionary solutions. Although urbanization has contributed to restricting city expansion, it is, nonetheless, essential to modify urbanization to beautify environmental control and overall performance primarily based totally on extra powerful solutions [3].

Bearing in thoughts the foregoing, the purpose of this look at is to offer a top level view of the know-how shape and traits in studies into urbanization withinside the GCC international locations. While there are a few bibliometric research on the subject of urbanization withinside the GCC international locations, they stay quick and for that reason now no longer complete. Therefore, this look at intends to close this know-how hole withinside the literature on the subject of urbanization withinside the GCC international locations. This is the primary complete scientometric look at performed withinside the GCC context at the urbanization domain [4].

Rapid urbanization and its associated environmental problems necessitate the in-intensity look at of the emergent regions of these studies. It is hoping that this exam of the educational landscape across the emergence, consequences, and long-time period viability of urbanization in GCC international locations will function a aid for researchers and different stakeholders. The findings can resource scholars, practitioners, and different stakeholders in knowledge the evolution of urbanization with regards to the alternative traits at play these days withinside the context of the GCC international locations. Eventually, this may end result in better-knowledgeable alternatives and progressed city rules. It is beneficial to put the urbanization fashion of the GCC international locations in the worldwide context. In this respect, urbanization is one of the greatest demanding situations dealing with all of the world’s primary towns [5].
