Enhancing Climate Change Adaptation in North Coast and Nile Delta in Egypt
This project seeks to support adaptation efforts of Egypt in the Nile Delta which is identified by the IPCC in its Fourth Assessment Report as one of the world’s three “extreme” vulnerable hotspots. The objective of the project is to reduce coastal flooding risks in Egypt’s North Coast due to the combination of projected sea level rise and more frequent and intense extreme storm events.
Output 1 focuses on constructing 69 km of sand dune dikes along five vulnerable hotspots within the Nile Delta that were identified during an engineering scoping assessment and technical feasibility study. Output 2 focuses on the development of an integrated coastal zone management (ICZM) plan for the entire North Coast, to manage long-term climate change risks and provide Egypt with adaptability to impending flood risks. The project will facilitate transformational change in in the short-term by reducing coastal flooding threats along vulnerable hotspots in the Delta and in the long- term by integrating additional risks of climate change into coastal management and planning, budgeting and implementation of risk reduction measures.
