Mega Construction Projects (MCPs) represent a strategic
option towards achieving sustainable development objectives
in developing countries. On the one hand, these projects are
charaterised with the need for high design knowledge and
technical skills; competent human resources and managerial
capabilities as well as excessive cost investment. Conversely,
developing countries experience shortage of many of these
requirements, which obstruct the development of (MCPs). This
paper aims to identify, validate, and classify the challenges of
delivering (MCPs) in developing countries. Towards achieving
this aim, two approaches were employed, namely literature
review and case studies, to accomplish four objectives.
• Reviewing the nature and characteristics of developing countries and (MCPs); identifying the challenges of delivering (MCPs)
in developing countries and establishing the need for (MCPs) in
developing countries.
• Validating the challenges identified from Litearture review
through collecting and analysing 36 case studies of (MCPs) in
developeding countries. Case studies confirmed many of the
identified challenges and added new insights that were not covered in current literature.
• Classifying the identified clalenges into four categories:
engineering challenges, human development challenges, managerial and political challenges and sustainability challenges.
• Outlining research conclusions and recommendations useful
for delivering successful (MCPs) in developing countries.
