Pollution is the biggest challenge facing Egypt and its water supply.1 Industrial runoff, agricultural runoff, and sewage are routinely deposited in the Nile River.2 Egypt is densely populated, waste storage is limited, and water treatment plants are scarce.3 Air pollution has increased in the past decade due to the significant population increase.4 In Cairo today, the average citizen inhales 20 times more than the acceptable level of air pollution daily.5 Along with the increased pollution, Egypt has to reform its environmental policies to help mitigate the negative effects that are caused by climate change and a rapidly expanding population.6

Occupying the northeast corner of the African continent, Egypt is bisected by the highly fertile Nile valley, where most economic activity takes place. Egypt's economy was highly centralized during the rule of former President Gamal Abdel NASSER but opened up considerably under former Presidents Anwar EL-SADAT and Mohamed Hosni MUBARAK. Cairo from 2004 to 2008 aggressively pursued economic reforms to attract foreign investment and facilitate GDP growth. Despite the relatively high levels of economic growth in recent years, living conditions for the average Egyptian remained poor and contributed to public discontent. After unrest erupted in January 2011, the Egyptian Government ...See More backtracked on economic reforms, drastically increasing social spending to address public dissatisfaction, but political uncertainty at the same time caused economic growth to slow significantly, reducing the government's revenues. Tourism, manufacturing, and construction were among the hardest hit sectors of the Egyptian economy, and economic growth is likely to remain slow during the next several years. The government drew down foreign exchange reserves by more than 50% in 2011 and 2012 to support the Egyptian pound and the dearth of foreign financial assistance - as a result of unsuccessful negotiations with the International Monetary Fund over a multi-billion dollar loan agreement which have dragged on more than 20 months - could precipitate fiscal and balance of payments crises in 2013.
