Ismaïliyya Development Project Project Brief

This project represents a critically important departure in the development of low-income housing in Egypt. It has channelled public housing subsidies toward local initiative and self-help. The effort involves the upgrading and extension of two existing settlements, Hai el-Salaam to the north of the city of Ismaïliyya, and Abu Atwa to the south.
