  • the second part, focused on the development of the following participatory activities:
    • Validation of the preliminary list of national stakeholders.
    • Identification of main coastal problems in the North, Delta and North Sinai coast.
    • Identification of urban development and coastal plans.
    • Presentation of the web site.

Stakeholders actively participated and provided useful information for the upcoming stages of the study.    



Meetings with key stakeholders:
during September and October 2016, the Consultant arranged a set of meetings with the following key stakeholders:
− Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency,
− Tourism Development Authority
− Shore Protection Authority
− National Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries
− General Organization of Physical Planning
− National Centre for Planning State Land Use
− Coastal Research Institute.
These interviews have the following objectives: i) to obtain information about their institutional structure and capacity, ii) to identify local stakeholders, and iii) to identify and collect available data for the study.


If you can provide useful information to the study or want to know our local coordinator and arrange a meeting with him, please contact us.


The study will set the basis for establishing an ICZM Plan for the North Coast of Egypt.
The training activity will enhance the empowerment of coastal managers for using the project results as the baseline of upcoming coastal management plans. The ACCNDP partners will learn about the most relevant techniques developed during the project. This activity encompasses the organization of two training sessions during December 2016.
