Time and Venue
16 June 2015, Marriott Hotel Zamalek – 9:00 am-10:30 am
Despite the increased piped water supply between 1990 and 2010 from 89% to 100% in urban areas and from 39% to 93% in rural areas, Egypt is still facing a number of challenges relating to the quality and efficiency of the water supply and sanitation system. Studies suggested that almost 30 percent of Egyptian water is lost through the mismanaged water system.
The aim of the Panel is to discuss:
- The relationship between underground water management, water provision and sanitation.
- Innovative low cost techniques for wastewater treatment and successful low cost/ participatory water management projects in Egypt.
- The challenges to recycle wastewater for landscaping.
- Should communities share costs for infrastructure or it’s merely the role of the government?
- Vision for an integrated urban water management strategies for Egypt
