Doha was established in the 1820s as Al Bidda's offshoot. In 1971 it was officially declared as country's capital, after Qatar gained independence.

It accommodates an Education City area devoted to education and research.
Doha hosted the first ministerial-level meeting of Doha Development Round of World Trade Organization negotiations. The city was also selected as host of a number of sporting events, such as the 2006 Asian Games, 2011 Pan Arab Games and most of the games at 2011 AFC Asian Cup. The 20th World Petroleum Conference was held in Doha in December 2011. Additionally, the city was the host of the 2012 UNFCCC Climate Negotiations.
