Local Economic Development
The Egyptian Governorates face many issues and differences on the developmental level of governorates. Such problems are: low living standards, high level of poverty, injustice in development returns’ distribution, in addition to developmental disparities among governorates, besides the high levels of unemployment, particularly among youth and villagers, lack of optimal and efficient use of local resources.
International and non-governmental organizations have worked for many years in development programs that cover various sectors including health, education, the environment ,and others. Despite the efforts and resources employed in these programs, development needs are increasing and there is still much to be done to achieve inclusive development.
Decentralization and Governance
Building the modern state and achieving a breakthrough in development requires decentralization and governance. The government is working to implement the decentralization as stipulated in the constitution ,and to set the optimal framework for the management of state affairs and society.
