Mega-Projects / Small-Projects? Notes from Egypt's Urban Margins

Abstract:

For decades, Egypt relied on mega urban projects as a driver for economic development. Often, they remained proposals for imagined cities. With increased official conviction, however, many came to realization recently. In parallel, Egypt witnessed the evolution of urban practices that call for a people-centered approach, investing in existing urban areas, and building on local communities' assets. Takween-ICD – a social enterprise established in 2009 – is advocating for better urban policies and practices through various local interventions in the so-called 'urban margins'.
