It was expected that the consultant would produce the following: a PPP management framework and a Sustainable Financial model for selected development projects in those mentioned informal areas.
In addition to training for the informal settlement development fund ISDF, the General organization for physical planning GOPP, and the Ministry of Housing, Utilities & Urban Communities MoHU PPP unit, which were part of the PPP study.
This project is a good example of our experience as consultants in Egypt.
The objective of this assignment was to develop a methodological framework and a set of recommendations about partnership potentials with the private sector that enhanced the urban planning process for developing informal settlements in Egypt.
