Content - Summary

In Egypt, water supply has considerably improved over the last decades, yet the provision of wastewater services did not correspond to the same extent, and mainly rural areas lack appropriate sanitation systems. As a result of insufficient wastewater treatment and disposal, both population and environment are increasingly threatened by pollution and unhygienic conditions. The establishment of decentralised sanitation systems can support overcome these shortcomings in rural Egypt.

This study aims at investigating difficulties in implementing decentralised sanitation services in Egypt. For this purpose, the establishment of the so-called “GTZ model” – a decentralised sanitation system, in Governorate Kafr El Sheikh in Egypt is investigated. Through the review of scientific literature related to the topic as well as through the review of project documents, and interviews and consultations with different stakeholders, different features related to the topic are
investigated. The study mainly focuses on socio-economic and institutional
aspects, with special reference to governance. As there is lack of scientific literature that tackles these aspects, this study can be seen as an important contribution towards bridging this gap.
