Egypt - Red Sea Coastal and Marine Resource Management Project (English)

The outcome of the Egypt - Red Sea Coastal and Marine Resource Management Project was satisfactory, the sustainability was likely, the institutional development impact was modest and, the Bank and borrower performance were both satisfactory. The lessons learned indicated that bringing together the main Government agencies: Tourism Development Authority (TDA), Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA), and the Red Sea Governorate (RSG) in the day-to-day management of the project, ensured that their interests were addressed and facilitated the project implementation. The development of the Geographic Information System database with an inventory of coastal and marine ecosystems for the Egyptian Red Sea coast, was a useful tool for investment programming, and coastal zone management. The project definitely benefited from the involvement of non government organizations such as Hurghada Environmental Protection for Corals Agency, the Safaga, private hotel operators, and dive boat operators. Promotion of environmental awareness amongst stakeholders is a key element in protecting fragile natural resources.
