Archived Info about the Project

Since Government of the Arab Republic of Egypt (GOE) requests Government of Japan (GOJ) technical cooperation on:

  1. Monitoring-data interpretation and countermeasures proposal capacity of Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA).
  2. Hazardous substance management of EEAA.
  3. Public awareness raising and training to external stakeholders of EEAA, due to their importance.

GOJ extends technical cooperation for a project on the capacity development of EEAA and it’s Regional Branch Offices (RBOs) for local environmental management improvement.

In the last first year of the REMIP, six Working Groups (WGs) and two Coordination Committees (CCs) composing of related departments and units in EEAA and RBOs, have been formulated to realize a smooth implementation of the REMIP according to the respective technical topics. The series of meetings for WGs/CCs and several technical trainings/seminars have been so far held under REMIP as well as procurement of equipment. Those activities will subsequently continued in the further stage of the REMIP.


“The staff of EQS and EQD of RBOs becomes capable of proposing countermeasures against environmental pollutions (site-evaluation, technical administrative measures) based on the data and information collected and interpreted”.

Overall Goal:

EEAA and Regional Branch Offices (RBOs) together with other competent stakeholders become capable of evaluating environmental situations, identifying the problems, defining the causes of such problems, acknowledging possible solutions, and implementing countermeasures through raising the environmental awareness of EMUs, enterprises, NGOs, and citizens.


EEAA and its RBOs are enhanced on the capability of managing environmental data and information, suggesting countermeasures through On-the-Job Training (OJT).
