The redevelopment project will be carried out by the Ministry of Environment.
The Ministry of Environment is launching a project to redevelop the Nabq village of Gharqana in South Sinai into an eco-friendly dream, relying entirely on sustainable resources with a total budget of EGP50 million.
The entire fisherman’s village will be moved 200 metres away from the coastline, with the hopes of improving the living conditions and the urban environment of the small community. During this preliminary phase, a team of researchers is well at work preparing a participatory survey with the locals in order to develop a socio-economic vision for the development plan that keeps in mind environmental interests.
The blueprints have already been completed for the village, and the ministry has taken on contractors that specialize in environmental architecture to implement the project. Compressed bricks made from natural soil will be used to build the housing units, among other environmentally sustainable building methods. Not only that, but the preparation and transportation of the equipment to the village will also be carried out with minimal environmental impact.
