ZA part of the Steering Committee for Cairo’s first National Urban Forum Nov 24, 2014
We’re happy to report that ZA was selected to be part of the Steering Committee for UN-Habitat’s first National Urban Forum to be held in Cairo next May. The Steering Committee, which consists of government officials, UN officers, academics, members of civil society, the private sector, and other NGOs, will meet regularly during the next 5 months to discuss the organization of the Forum.
One of the main reasons ZA accepted to participate in this effort is to push for making the question of “Urban Management” a central theme in the Forum. We don’t believe there can be any “Urban Development” without proper urban management.
The Steering Committee held a first meeting today at the Ministry of Housing & Urban Planning, and we’ll keep you posted as things progress. Thank you Mrs. Seheir Kansouh for introducing the Zamalek Association to the UN!
