English Title

An Approach To Empower Participatory Management In Egypt

Keywords

Participatory, good governance, decentralization, deprived areas, slums

Disciplines

Urban, Community and Regional Planning

Abstract

Slums are a problem facing the whole world as a result of poor housing policies and rapid urbanization. Previous Egyptian housing policies created the problem of slums from scratch. The Egyptian government tries to eliminate slums with centralized policies, but it does not succeed. Egypt recently recognized the need to participate in slum upgrading through community partnership. Previous upgrading policies did not perform as required due to their distance from a participatory and fair representation of stakeholders. The independent participatory intermediary model achieves great results if it has decentralized decision-making. The problem is the relation between the governing parties in Egypt. The gap between them causes resolutions haphazard because of non-participation in decision-making. As a result, the objectives are not achieved as hoped in upgrading slums. This paper aims to draw a framework between governance parties to achieve the objectives through literature reviews and the availability of applying it in Egypt.
