The Ministry of environment, in cooperation with the Arab office for youth and environment, launched the celebration of National Environment Day on January 27 every year from 2020 to emphasize the role of civil society to highlight its efforts in environmental conservation and development.

Egypt’s Red Sea governor, General Ahmed Abdullah, decided to ban single-use or disposable plastics starting from June after agreeing to the proposal submitted by Hepca (Hurghada Environmental Protection & Conservation Association).

Egypt’s only waterfalls are located at the valley of Wadi El-Rayan, 65 km southwest of Fayoum city, is home to two large artificial lakes created to divert excess agricultural drainage water from Fayoum oasis. It is also home to the country’s only waterfalls. Interesting is that they are man-made!
