Egypt National Projects

Building Egypt 

The Egyptian populace has long clustered together with a large majority residing on only 4% of the country’s territory. The resulting congestion amid the rapidly growing population has fueled the government’s decentralization scheme via the building of new cities. The New Cities initiative was launched in 1977, codified under Law 59/1979 and implemented by the New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA).
Since then, a number of cities were built across Egypt and are grouped by the period in which they were completed. Almost one third of all the new cities are in the Greater Cairo region. There are 31 new cities spread across Egypt, a total of 2.54 mn acres of land. More than 0.5 mn residential units have been constructed in those cities, and 217,706 more units are being developed. About 32 water plants, 77 sewage plants, and 27 electrical plants have been developed to cater to the new cities needs with more planned for the future.
