The Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS): Egypt Vision 2030 represents a foothold on the way towards inclusive development, thus cultivating a prosperity path through economic and social justice. SDS represents a roadmap for maximizing competitive advantage to achieve the aspirations of Egyptians in a dignified and decent life.
It also represents an embodiment of the new constitution's spirit, setting welfare and prosperity as the main economic objectives, to be achieved via sustainable development, social justice and a balanced, geographical and sectoral growth. Therefore, SDS has been developed according to a participatory strategic planning approach; as various civil society representatives, national and international development partners and government agencies have collaborated to set comprehensive objectives for all pillars and sectors of the country.
The current local, regional and global circumstances give the SDS a comparative advantage and importance; for revisiting the strategic vision to cope and deal with international updates and developments. Thus, helping Egypt recover and achieve specific objectives.
SDS has followed the sustainable development principle as a general framework for improving the quality of lives and welfare, taking into consideration the rights of new generations in a prosperous life; thus, dealing with three main dimensions; economic, social, and environmental dimensions.
In addition, SDS is based upon the principles of "inclusive sustainable development" and "balanced regional development"; emphasizing the full participation in development, and ensuring its yields to all parties. The strategy, as well, considers equal opportunities for all, closing development gaps, and efficient use of resources to ensure the rights of future generations.
Egypt Vision 2030 includes an important and detailed pillar on "Culture". It highlights the main strategies adopted by Egypt to develop the cultural sector.
