This project will address the critical priority capacity needs to increase the participation of stakeholders in implementing Multilateral Environmenal Agreements (MEAs)’ obligations committed by the government of Egypt. These barriers were identified during the NCSA process conducted in 2005-2007 and confirmed subsequently by the assessment conducted during the formulation of the “Sustainable Development Strategy: Egypt Vision 2030”.
The objective of the project is “to strengthen the participation of Stakeholders in the implementation of MEAs in Egypt”. The project will engage a large number of government officials, universities and registered NGOs to build partnerships to ensure mutual knowledge transfer and learning. This partnership approach will help strengthen the institutional and systemic capacities of Egypt to improve the management of the environment in Egypt, including a greater contribution toward global environmental benefits.
