Egypt Urban Forum (EUF)

The Ministry of Housing and Urban Communities of the Arab Republic of Egypt, the Ministry of Urban Renewal and Informal Settlements and UN-Habitat are organizing the First Egypt Urban Forum (EUF) in Cairo on June 14th, 15th and 16th, 2015. This ground-breaking event seeks to strengthen the existing urban institutional landscape at the national level and paves the way towards a greater integration of Egypt on the global urban development scene.

For the first time in Egypt, more than 300 Egyptian institutions, decision makers, civil society representatives, scholars and experts, private sector companies and around 50 regional and international partners will be invited to build a policy dialogue platform, shape Egypt’s future urban agenda and contribute to the World Urban Agenda at the Habitat III Global Conference in 2016. In total, the EUF will host up to 500 participants.

Following the model of the World Urban Forum (WUF), the EUF structure will include a variety of sessions, exhibitions and side events to promote a genuine and inclusive dialogue as well as a platform for networking opportunities.
