What we do
In order to improve the living conditions of the urban poor in Cairo’s informal areas, PDP engages in a wide range of activities and the programme structure distinguishes between four major fields of actions. The four programme components of PDP are Institutionalisation, Climate Change Adaptation and Urban Resilience, Solid Waste Management and the Fund for Upgrading of Informal Areas. In addition, a Youth Fast track Measure was implemented in Cairo and Giza Governorate from 2011 to 2013 and a Local Initiatives Fund was created to support grassroots mobilisation.
On the governorate level, so-called Urban Upgrading Units (UUUs) have been established in Qualyubeya, Cairo and Giza governorate and now constitute key partners for the PDP.
