During the meeting, topics on the agenda included a report on the efforts of the committees during the past period including the work of the Committee on Urban Development and Projects that embraced a number of projects such as water, urban development, road mosques, and review teams.

The Committee on Slums Development presented a report that included the approval of a guide to develop projects concerning the slums which will include a range of solutions to meet the requirements of the government and private sector.

For its part, the Committee of Social Development presented a report on its work including its attempts to institutionalize and empower volunteer work; to encourage the non-profit sector to work in the development fields; and to care for and stimulate those who are retired to engage in social activities.
