Optimizing Water Allocation in Rural Areas of Lake Nasser
– Upper Egypt

Project leader: Prof. Dr. Lars Ribbe

To work against the high
population pressure and the poverty problems in Egypt, rural areas are opened for new settlements in the Region of Lake Nasser. Due to its high potential for development the government is planning to settle approximately 1, 5 million people in this area within the following 10-15 years. In order to avoid unplanned settlements in the area with a negative impact on natural resources a “Comprehensive Development Plan for Aswan and Lake Nasser” was developed in 2003 by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) together with the Aswan Governorate.
