Egypt localizes environment-friendly transport ahead of COP27
Egypt has developed a future strategy to introduce electric means of transport into public transport.
This comes as the state is only 138 days away from hosting the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference, referred to as (COP27).
Egypt seeks to localize the idea of sustainable environmentally-friendly transport and to switch to the use of electric and natural gas-powered cars.
Egypt’s agenda aims to reduce air pollution and climate change, in Greater Cairo, by supplying the Public Transport Authority with about 100 electric buses.
It also participated in the implementation of the strategy to localize the electric car industry in Egypt, through cooperation between some ministries.
Egypt applied a pioneering experiment of electric mobility at the General Authority for Passenger Transport in Alexandria, and the creation of about 15 electric buses as a public transport service.
