In March, 2015, the Arab Republic of Egypt launched its “Sustainable Development Strategy,” (SDS) Egypt’s vision for 2030. This ambitious strategic plan will involve:
• Reclaiming one million feddan,
• The creation of one million social housing units,
• Adding 4,800 km to the road network, and
• Other important social and economic development initiatives.
Integral to the SDS is reforming the national planning process. A number of the elements in this process relate to land development, land use management, land registration and land law enforcement.
