Additionally, the studies also addressed the protection and development of the beaches of Port Said in order to be able to face the sea level rise.
The Egyptian-Dutch Water Management Advisory Council was established in 1976, and has been working since then to support the exchange of experiences between the Egyptian and Dutch governments in the areas of planning and management of water resources, including maximising the return of water in agriculture, improving water quality, sewage treatment technologies, and integrated management for coastal areas.
Meanwhile, a delegation from the ministry of water resources and irrigation participated in the meetings of the specialised technical committee for infrastructure in Africa.
The meeting which was held in Cairo on Tuesday, dealt with the progress of the work plan for the infrastructure projects for the years 2017-2019, as well as the preparation of the work plan for the projects for 2020-2030.
Representatives from 37 countries from the 54 member states of the African Union participated in the meeting. Regional economic groups, regional and continental institutions, and international organisations related to infrastructure have also taken part in the meeting.
