The meeting is the first opportunity since the Kick-Off Meeting in March this year where representatives of all partner institutions will come together to discuss the status and progress of the project. The most pertinent topics that will be discussed are the WEF Nexus survey and the WEF Strategy (both WP 1)
In a collaborative effort between Politecnico di Milano, The American University in Cairo (AUC) and Heliopolis University for Sustainable Development (HU) a questionnaire for the WEF Nexus survey has been developed and distributed widely. It is expected that the survey will provide crucial insights about the existing knowledge and expertise around the WEF Nexus in Egypt and thus help to design the WEF platform according to the specific needs of the experts. In the meeting the first insights of the questionnaire will be presented to the partners.
A team consisting of experts from AUC and HU has furthermore analyzed the strategies of the Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation , the Ministry of Electricity and Energy and the Ministry of Water Resources an Irrigation. The summary of this analysis as well as the first corner stones of a proposed integrated strategy will be presented.
The meting will also include a brief update about all other activities that have been carried out in the past month, e.g. identification of the WEF Nexus coordination bodies and development of the structure for the sustainability committee. The work package leaders will update the consortium about the ongoing activities and upcoming deliverables.
