Since 1956, GIZ has been implementing projects in all parts of the country on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). GIZ also works on behalf of other German public sector clients and international organisations. The socio-political transition and current stagnation of the economy present new challenges and options for development cooperation.

The priority areas agreed with the Egyptian Government are:

  • Renewable energies and energy efficiency
  • Water supply and sanitation, irrigation and waste management
  • Sustainable economic development for employment.
  • Other programmes focus on support for women and families, decentralisation, and urban development. Among these, the Participatory Development Programme in Urban Areas receives much of its funding from the European Union.
