Résumé partiel
The Joint Programme has been structured within the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) Outcome 3 and , as such, seeks to support the reduction of human development disparities, with special reference to the gender gap and environmental sustainability. The aim of the joint programme is to protect the area of the Dahshur pyramids and its ecosystem while fostering sustainable development, cultural and ecological management and revenue generation in the surrounding community. This cultural heritage component of the JP is a pilot based on the Supreme Council of Antiquities master plan, which is currently being developed to preserve cultural heritage in Memphis and its Necropolis. Therefore the JP has the potential to be replicated in other regions of the country. The JP has addressed the importance of community development and the identification of informal leaders within the community and to spearhead the project and has, as a consequence delineated an inclusive approach to community mobilisation and stakeholder involvement. The commitment, participation and contribution of both the local and national authorities in all aspects of the project is reflected in the implementation strategy outlined in the Results and Resource Framework of the JP document. The outcomes are : Employment, especially of youth and women in heritage arts, crafts, tourism and creative industries increased, contributing to poverty alleviation and empowerment and ; enhanced institutional capacity to manage cultural heritage and natural resources.
