MWC Egypt: Reed Cropping
Saturday 30 July 2005, by Web Team

After the success of the first phase of the reed cropping project in Lake Burullus which resulted in cropping around 860 feddans, causing an improvement of the ecological balance, an increase of areas available for fishing, and the creation of job opportunities, MedWetCoast- Egypt is currently preparing to embark upon the second phase of the reed-cropping project, which is expected to crop around 5000 feddans in accordance with the management plan.

The decision to embark on the second phase came upon the recommendations of the Independent Assessment Committee headed by renowned environmentalist Dr. Mohamed El Kassass. The committee endorsed the first phase’s success and recommended launching a second phase.

The Local Development Committee held several meetings to assess the operation’s executive level, its problems and possible development. Experiences gained from the first phase were incorporated into the second phase’s structure, administration and dialogue.

Five new non-governmental organizations NGOs have come forward to join the second phase; thus amounting to a total of 17 NGOs. This confirms the success of the participatory approach which the project endorses.
