CAIRO - 13 June 2022: The Ministry of Planning and Economic Development allocated LE 200 billion to implement the first phase of the presidential initiative Hayah Karima "A Dignified Life" mid-last year at the level of 1,500 villages in 52 centers, where 30 percent of the allocations were directed to green projects and environmental improvement.
In the forefront of these projects are the drinking water and sanitation projects, irrigation and agriculture, transportation and energy. The canal lining project is one of the projects with economic and environmental returns that the state is implementing within the projects of a decent life at the level of Egyptian villages.
The ministry explained in its report that the cost of decent life projects increased from LE 600 billion to nearly LE 1 trillion, as the decent life initiative is the largest development initiative in the world, both in terms of the scope of the impact that extends to 60 percent of the population of the republic, and the size of the projects that are being implemented.
The Egyptian state aims to complete the development of all 4,600 villages in the Egyptian countryside, comprising 58 million people, by 2025 instead of 2030, which will contribute to shortening 5 years of development, and achieving one of its most important goals, which is the eradication of poverty.
