NWFE, is a national scheme meant to implement the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), a document Egypt recently submitted detailing its commitments to emission targets by 2030.


NWFE, launched by Egypt's Minister of International Cooperation in July 2022, reflects the interlinkages and complementarity between climate action and development efforts, and is intended to aid Egypt in its transitional phase to a green economy as part of the country's National Climate Change Strategy 2050.


The programme seeks to mobilise concessional development finance for a package of priority green development projects in the food, water and energy sectors.


 NWFE aims to achieve sustainable, low-emission development, and enhance scientific research and technology transfers in the climate change field.


The projects covered by NWFE – within its three fields – cater to the needs of adaptation and mitigation in ways that enhance the country’s sustainable development trajectory for COP 27 and beyond.


At the energy sector, NWFE aims to shift Egypt from inefficient and harmful practices, such as thermal power plants, to renewable energy.


In terms of food and water security, there are plans to enhance small farmers’ adaptation to climate risks.


In addition, there are other plans to increase crop yields and irrigation efficiency to build resilience of vulnerable regions.
