Launch Event for the Alexandria Green City Action Plan
Date: 7 May 2023
Time: 10.00 – 15.30 local time
On Sunday 7 May 2023, the City of Alexandria will host a project kick-off meeting and launch event for the development of its Green City Action Plan (GCAP). After opening speeches and an overview of the GCAP process and expected outcomes, roundtable discussions will provide participants with an opportunity to share their thoughts on the key environmental challenges affecting the City.
The City of Alexandria expressed its commitment to develop a GCAP by joining the Green Cities programme in 2019. The aim of the programme is to support cities’ transition to a green, low-carbon and resilient future through identifying priority investments and policy actions. The GCAP will act as a tool to attract funding for long-term sustainable urban development, supporting public and private entities. The actions identified will seek to address the most pressing environmental challenges and climate change risks.
The GCAP development is supported by the EBRD in cooperation with the Egyptian authorities represented by the Ministry of International Cooperation. The GCAP is funded by the Austria-EBRD CREATE fund for city regeneration and environment support.
