Egypt to receive 61.5 million euros in new funding from the European Union

A financing agreement worth 61.5 million euros has been signed by the Egyptian Ministry of International Cooperation with the French Development Agency and the European Union to complete the Yellow Mountain water treatment plant project in Cairo. This project is aimed at enhancing climate change adaptation efforts and water projects in Egypt, which constitute a significant portion of the development cooperation portfolio with the European Union.

The agreement includes a development financing agreement worth 50 million euros, a grant worth 1.5 million euros, and a grant agreement worth 10 million euros between the European Union and the French Development Agency. These funds will go towards implementing the third phase of the Al-Jabal Al-Asfar water treatment plant project, which serves 17.5 million people by collecting and treating wastewater. The project aims to increase the station’s capacity by one million cubic meters per day using advanced technology and tertiary treatment for treated water provision for agricultural irrigation and biogas generation.

Dr. Rania Al-Mashat, Minister of International Cooperation, emphasized on World Water Day that water is crucial for Egypt’s development and its impact on achieving comprehensive development goals through collaborative efforts. This financing agreement coincides with World Water Day and marks a significant step forward in Egypt’s cooperation with Europe under the “Team Europe” initiative to ensure sustainable development and environmental conservation efforts in water management.

The French Ambassador to Egypt and Head of the European Union Delegation to Egypt both highlighted that cooperation is essential for achieving water security in developing countries like Egypt. The successful completion of this project through joint efforts between Egypt and Europe highlights their commitment towards improving services for around 17 million people in Cairo, bringing them closer to common development goals while also promoting environmental conservation efforts.

In conclusion, this partnership represents an important milestone towards sustainable development in Egypt, as it brings together multiple stakeholders from different sectors to work towards a common goal of improving access to clean water sources while also reducing pollution levels through advanced technology implementation.
