Egyptian workshop on Site Management Implementation
From Theory to Practice: From Management Plans to Management Committees
Friday 5 December 2003, by Web Team

Upon the completion of the Management Plans for Zaranik, Burullus and Omayed protectorates, MedWetCoast-Egypt held three workshops under the auspices of H.E Dr. Mamdouh Riyad State Minister for Environmental Affairs, to present, discuss and validate the management plans with the local stakeholders.

Each workshop was held in one of the protectorates’ respective governorates, and was inaugurated by its Governor. Local stakeholders, Protected Area Manager PAM, local government officials and representatives of various ministeries & organizations were present. Also present were donors’ representatives; namely, the United Nations Development Programme UNDP, the Global Environmental Facility GEF and the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency EEAA.

The workshops achieved their main goal: the validation of the management plans. These plans are lengthy studies including all site surveys, site diagnosis and suggested management techniques. The studies consumed a whole year to complete, and were undertaken by Egyptian experts contracted by the project.

Furthermore, chief amongst the workshops’ recommendations was the appointment of a Management Committee for each protectorate. Each Committee is chaired by the Governor of the governorate in which the protectorate befalls, or his representative. It includes the protectorate manger, the project’s manager, an EEAA representative, local government officials and representatives of various ministries. Moreover, it includes local representatives from various Non-Governmental Organizations NGOs, co-operatives, local tribes or families, and local representatives to the Egyptian Senate.

The Management Committees, already active and convening, undertake the implementation of the management plan. They will continue to run the protectorates even after the termination of the project; thus, achieving the goal of grass-root sustainable development ’development by the people for themselves’.
