Introduction

The 3rd international conference on improving sustainability concept in developing countries, organized by IEREK, is considered to be the important step in spreading science and knowledge through the participation of researchers from all around the world.

The main goal of this conference is to improve and enhance the quality of life and built environment in developing countries. This could be achieved through the outcomes of the conference in the treatment of all problems in saving energy, using renewable energy, and to use efficient building materials and other aspects that achieve the environmental efficiency.

Additionally, this conference emphasizes on using energy performance simulation in the design process of sustainability. Using simulation tools facilitate achieving accurate and new results for studying energy consumption in buildings for both new and existing buildings as well.

Architects, environmentalists, engineers, and stakeholders are all invited to participate and contribute to this conference in order to exchange knowledge and experience in one place. This will be a great chance that works in order to evolve our built environment and also update new approaches that contribute to improving sustainability in developing different communities. This conference will discuss topics such as sustainability concept In architecture and urban design, environmental issues, and natural resources and environmental dimension.
