Descriptif
Defending the vulnerable Nile Delta against coastal flooding damage to improve the resilience of rural communities.

The Nile Delta is among the top three most vulnerable regions in the world, according to the IPCC. The Delta faces the threat of flooding of low-lying coastlines from sea level rise and increased intensity and frequency of storm events. A one meter rise in sea level is expected to submerge 20% of the land area of the delta by the end of the 21st century. Salinization of land and water resources is expected to have significant impacts on agriculture, fishing and availability of freshwater resources.

Providing coastal defence soft structures and integrated coastal management to adapt to coastal flooding from sea level rise and increased frequency of storms. This will reduce the vulnerability of coastal infrastructure, protecting surrounding villages, agricultural land, and the international coastal road. The project will also lead to the development of an integrated coastal zone management plan for the entire North coast of Egypt.
