Socio Economic

The identification of the main social and economic features of the Northern Coast provides information about the coastal settlements and economic activities along the coast. Human activities strongly interact with coastal environment: human activities cause impacts on the natural systems and, at the same time, they are exposed to coastal dynamics and physical impacts. The integrated diagnosis carried out during the ICZM Scoping Study focuses on integrating socioeconomic and environmental information to highlight the main conflicts and problems of the coastal areas, as land-use conflicts.

This section compiles information collected from different Egyptian authorities regarding the land use, administrative limits, urban centers and transportation infrastructures.
