Titre : Anticipatory Flood Management in Alexandria, Egypt.

Research & Development

Pays/ Région : Egypte

Durée : Jul 2017 - Jun 2024

Descriptif
This project will lead to a significantly reduced impact of flooding, as a result of climate change, on society in general and in particular the livelihoods of the poorest populations of Alexandria, Egypt. AFMA sets an example for other urban Egyptian / Arab areas and concerns “an innovative, no-regret approach (low hanging fruit : little investment and large gains) which allows to both mitigate and reduce the impacts of flooding resulting from extreme weather events” - both short and long term. Preparedness and adaptation will lead to increasing flood resilience, thus benefitting from Dutch experience in Anticipatory Flood Management.
