The objective of the PDP is to improve the living conditions for the poor urban population through improved environmental conditions and better service delivery by public administration and civil society organisations.

GIZ supports the Egyptian Ministry of Planning (MoP), and other partner ministries as well as the Governorates of Cairo, Giza and Qalyubeya in developing and implementing sustainable solutions for informal area development.

The PDP programme promotes a participatory approach to dealing with informal settlements, good governance reforms and decentralisation, and aims to foster the implementation of participatory policy tools and networking mechanisms among public, civil, and private sectors in the sustainable development of informal areas.
