Brief Project Description
Strengthening institutional structures as well as the civil society is essential to achieve goals like democratization and sustainable development. Egypt prepared the Sustainable Development Strategy “Egypt’s Vision 2030” in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and initiated several programs to boost development in diversified sectors. The need arises to support these efforts, especially in a phase of major political and economic challenges to realize administrative reform as well as sustainable environmental and economic development.
The Hanns Seidel Foundation aims with its project to contribute to the administrative reform and sustainable environmental and economic development process in cooperation with concerned Egyptian institutions through public awareness raising and capacity building especially for youth, women and persons with disabilities. This should lead to enhancing the participation of the target groups in the preparation and implementation of local development programs and participatory development initiatives as well as their contribution to the protection of the environment and to the economic development process.
The participation of all people of the society including youth, women and persons with disabilities remains indispensable to implement national strategies and achieve a sustainable development sensed by everyone, which would all in turn reflect on an improvement in the living standards of the entire Egyptian people.
