The Implementation Plan is intended as a future prototype to explore new models for urban regeneration in historic zones that integrate energy efficiency into the plans, thereby linking planning and urban design measures for the improvement of mobility and the public realm with public and private investments in energy-efficient buildings.

The EBRD supports private and public initiatives to revitalize the historic center and save its heritage. The EBRD has commissioned technical assistance for the integrated and sustainable regeneration of Downtown Cairo by developing a strategic implementation plan for the regeneration of the area, maintaining its cultural and historical heritage, conducting energy and resource audits of major buildings in the Downtown area, and national policy engagement with key public and private stakeholders.
Work on the Downtown Cairo Regeneration Implementation Plan began in early 2016 and has been implemented by an Egyptian-Austrian consortium of urban regeneration and building energy efficiency experts, led in Egypt by OHK Consultants. This international / local team worked in close collaboration with the Cairo Governorate to develop the Implementation Plan.
