SWITCH: Managing Water for the City of the Future

Managing Water for the City of the Future

Alexandria – Egypt

Introduction

Alexandria, the most downstream city along the longest river in the world, focused on the development of an integrated urban water management plan and demonstrating how urban slum communities could be served with water supplies. Key actors included the city government, water and sanitation utilities, and urban slum community and a research focused institute. Although it was not possible to complete the plan in time to identify its short-term outcomes, it actively engaged the main city water institutions in its development. The demonstration project pushed the boundaries in showing that the water utility can engage with and supply the most marginalised informal communities in the city.
