Egypt's Minister of Environment, Yasmin Fouad, has announced plans to develop natural reserves and protectorates in Sinai and the Red Sea as one of the main objectives of the Egypt 2030 Sustainable Development Strategy, according to Egypt Independent.

Specifications for investment portfolios for several reserves have been prepared and will be put up for public bidding.

Fouad also revealed that a management plan for Sinai's Nabq area had been drafted, as well as an architectural plan for the village of Gharqana Village within Nabq, which is said to be environmentally, socially and culturally compatible. Meanwhile, roads around St. Catherine and the surroundings of Mount Sinai is also set to be developed, while structural design and visitor services at Blue Hole in Ras Abu Galoum are also set to be upgraded. 

Other areas around Egypt set to be surveyed with a view to implementing development include Tawal, Topia al-Baidaa, and Om a-Sheikh in the Red Sea, as well as Wadi Al Gamal, Wadi Degla, Qarun and Wadi Al Rayan.
