Abstract

This report describes the activities of the Making Cities Work/Greater Cairo
Healthy Neighborhood Program (CHNP) undertaken in Ezbet el Nawar during an
eleven month period from October 2003 to August 2004. The activities included an environmental assessment of the sewer and water system, laboratory analyses of samples drawn from private wells and the municipal filtered water system, a neighborhood health and environment survey administered to 510 households, preparation of a local plan of action and implementation of water and sewer improvements. This work builds on the USAID Urban Health Initiative and initial activities by others in early summer 2003 to conduct a rapid qualitative situation analysis and to convene stakeholder meetings for both local residents and government representatives. The report includes a chapter on lessons learned in the project.
