4% of GDP lost due to traffic congestion in Cairo

The economic costs of traffic congestion in Cairo could be as high as 4 percent of GDP yearly - what are possible solutions?
Since Phase I of the Cairo Traffic Congestion Study is an analysis of the causes of Cairo congestion only as well as the preliminary estimation of economic cost, this overview also provides potential solutions, based on the work of the ongoing Phase II of the Cairo Traffic Congestion Study and previous studies, including the World Bank’s Proposed Urban Transport Strategy for Greater Cairo.
