About the Conference:
The greatest percentage of global human settlement is intermediate cities. Top priorities should be given to them in studies, visions and development strategies. This is of particular relevance to Egypt, a country where the population occupies only 5-6% of the overall land. Intermediate cities present themselves as an optimum solution to this problem. This solution comes with both challenges and opportunities which are also of relevance to other countries in similar contexts. This conference covers a broad range of issues related to the challenges of settlements in desert intermediate cities of Egypt and countries of analogous situations. By addressing commonalities and allowing for diversities and uniqueness of individual localities, visionary approaches and strategies will allow us to write the history of a better future that is both viable and sustainable.
