Developing a comprehensive wastewater network to minimise demand on fresh water sources and safeguard Egypt’s water security

Egypt's wastewater sector has stepped its efforts to close the gap in capacity that exists especially in rural areas. The government have set aggressive targets, that need to be met in the next 18 months, to increase capacity from 15-50%. With funding from the World Bank and the European Union, NOPWASD has been given almost $1 billion from these development agencies to fund the National Rural Sanitation Plan as well as the Improved Water and Wastewater Sanitation Programme II.

Meanwhile in the major cities there has been a a focus on developing tertiary treatment capacity with the mammoth $2.4 billion Abu Rawash upgrade being inked at the end of last year, the upgrade of the Gabal Al Asfar project and the $4 billion Egyptian Pound development of the infrastructure New Cairo Capital by the New Urban Communities Authority. In light of  the rapid activity in this sector we are organising Wastewater Egypt from 28-29 August to discuss these projects and the most efficient and cost effective technologies that will be utilised in delivering them.

We have assembled a stellar lineup of senior speakers representing all the above projects mentioned as well as those responsible for the planning and execution of wastewater projects in the country for years to come.
