MedWetCoast Egypt
Efforts in Mobilizing Resources for Egyptian Management Plans Implementation
Thursday 29 January 2004, by Web Team

With the completion of the management plans, it was apparent that implementation of these plans cannot depend solely on the MedWetCoast resources. Consequently, MedWetCoast Egypt is continuously working towards developing partnerships, and securing additional funds.

To date, it has succeeded in mobilizing L.E. 11,000,000 from other relevant ministries, through the local management committees, for management operations of a large scope that are only possible through the public sector, including dredging lakes inlets and canals, setting up weirs, and rehabilitation of wells. Additionally, it has succeeded in developing a partnership with the GEF Small Grants Project in implementing management projects that can be undertaken by local NGOs. So far three proposals were accepted to be funded by the GEF small grants steering committee, with more potential collaborations present.

Collaborating with national and international agencies that fund NGOs and Government Organizations (GOs), in implementing the management plans, is a challenge that is one of MedWetCoast Egypt’s priorities in 2004.

One round table meeting for NGOs Funding Agencies was organized on January 26th, 2004, under the auspice of the Minister of Environment. Interest for collaboration was apparent. Follow up meetings with these agencies, at individual basis is planned in the next phase. A meeting at a larger scale for agencies that fund Government Organizations is also planned for April 2004.
