Cairo will develop the areas of Ain Shams, Al Matareya, and Azbet El Nasr in Basateen during the upcoming period through a collaboration between the government and the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) through GIZ’s Participatory Development Program (PDP) in urban areas, Invest-Gate reports.

Atef Abdel Hamid met with the president of PDP to discuss potential enhancements to living conditions in slum areas through developing basic foundations and public services in rural sanitation, water, education, greenery, infrastructure, and health sectors, according to the governorate statement.

The development program is funded by the European Union and the Cairo governorate.
