Egypt's Nuclear Program
Monday, January 10, 2022
Since the 1950s, Egypt has been one of the first countries to realize the importance of using nuclear energy. It was one of the first founding countries of the International Atomic Energy Agency in 1957, with capabilities that would allow for its catapult in the peaceful usage of Nuclear Energy.
Prioritizing care and attention to the matter has proven relevant given its overall positive effect on development. Securing energy and diversifying its sources, as well as maintaining a clean environment, are among the most essential elements required to achieve the goals of the Sustainable Development Strategy of the Egypt Vision 2030, launched back in February 2016. This is particularly illustrated in the use of nuclear energy to generate electricity, which is pivotal to sustainable development, given that it is one of the clean energy sources that are free of carbon emissions leading to climate change.

Youth Creativity: Youth Policies and Social Innovation in Egypt
Monday, January 17, 2022
The Egyptian Government has been working for many years to achieve the integrated development of the state. Given those young people aged 10–24 comprise almost one-third of Egypt’s population, the state has placed youth at the top of its priorities by developing policies aimed at empowering young people and initiating special programs to rehabilitate them to raise their capabilities, provide overall support to the young community entrepreneurs and highlight potential leaders through local people who can make positive change in their community by creating solutions to problems and pushing their implementation.
In this context, the Egyptian Ministry of Youth and Sports cooperates with many international institutions, most prominently in the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), to design and launch appropriate programs for youth in Egypt, as well as formulate and prepare the necessary policies to benefit from the young energy of our youth.
Egyptian Electricity and Energy Sector Transition
Tuesday, January 18, 2022
The earth is experiencing an extraordinary scale of extreme weather events such as heatwaves, floods, wildfires, and pandemics. These are drivers which lead us to energy transition which will require changes in the form of production and consumption of electricity. The global energy transition is more than a simple transformation of the energy sector – it is a multi-dimension transition, and is evolving in terms of technologies, socio-economics, institutional drivers, and forms of finance.
From a long time ago, the Egyptian Electricity sector has started its transition to low-carbon electricity sources, it relies basically on exploiting renewable energy resources and contributes significantly to improving energy efficiency, securing electric supply, and reducing emissions.
Egypt has an abundance of land, sunny weather for the majority of the year, and sufficiently high wind speeds. Numerous projects related to wind energy are in place such that several “large-scale wind farms with a total capacity of about 1.62 GW were established in cooperation with Germany (KFW), Denmark (DANIDA), Spain (Siemens Gamesa), and Japan (JICA) since 2001” (USA International Trade Administration).
Investing in the future: Investment Opportunities in Higher Education “The Investment Forum”
Wednesday, January 19, 2022
Higher Education is central to creating a knowledge-based economy and it is essential for economic development. Recent years have seen a large growth in school enrolment all over the world, which has inevitably led to a dramatic increase in secondary graduates in many countries. In turn, the demand for university education has also significantly increased. High levels of education greatly contribute to increased productivity and growth and hence help individuals participate in economic growth. This has resulted in a growing demand for support for higher education pouring into Egypt’s vision for investment in the Higher Education Sector.
As the growing demand for education has not yet been fully met by governments; private players have an opportunity to make up for that gap in the market while also focusing on investment with a high social value. Since private education is a rapidly expanding market occurring in all types of economies; from developed to middle income and emerging economies; the entire private education sector has further, reached a market size of $400 billion.
Water: A Key Driver for Sustainable Development (Egypt Case Study)
Thursday, January 20, 2022
Egypt’s ambitious and long-term plan to achieve a paradigm shift in water management is a strategy that focuses on the development and management of water resources up to the year 2050. It relies on 4 main pillars which are: water quality improvement, increasing water use efficiency, development of new water resources, and creation of an enabling environment. Furthermore, Egypt has prepared its National Water Resources Plan (NWRP) for the period between 2017 to 2037 with initial estimates of USD 50 billion in investments (and this figure could be doubled). This plan comprises several ambitious measures including the implementation of various efficient irrigation water improvement programs, multiple water recycling mechanisms, and higher agriculture productivity techniques that contribute to Egypt’s food security.
