Since the late 1990s Egypt has promoted ICTs as one of its main economic growth engines. ICTs have been used for over a decade to monitor and reportenvironmental changes and are becoming an important tool for climate change adaptation.

This report looks at how ICTs are being used in Egypt to mitigate and adapt to climate change as well as how e-waste is managed in the country. It documents the key stakeholders involved, offers an overview of the policy and legislative context, analyses challenges and trends, and identifies several key areas for civil society advocacy.
