Sustainable Development of the Built Environment
Sustainable development is a fundamental pillar for the socio-economic welfare of Egypt. However, the rapid growth of the country limits the resources required to meet its national demands, particularly in the building sector. The significance of the BC-SDBE institutional link project is to bridge the gap between the rapidly developing advancements in research and training on sustainable development globally, the demanding professional development required in Egypt’s construction labour market, and the national plans for the country’s economic development.
The aim of the BC-SDBE project is to build capacity in education, research, innovation, and exploitation of state-of-the art sustainable development strategies from a holistic sustainable development approach as an influential initiative to meet socio-economic demands in Egypt. The objective is to develop training programmes and curricula that coordinate between stakeholders; researchers, academics and practitioners that embed holistic sustainable development at all scales of the built environment; buildings, neighbourhoods, cities and regions.
