Egyptian Housing Solutions Competition

The forum launched a Call for Proposals for entrepreneurs to submit project proposals on a resilient housing model; an innovative model that addresses resilience, mitigation, and affordability that takes into consideration the Egyptian context (geography and demography) and follows the national building regulations.

The Call for proposals closes at the end of September 2022.

The competition is managed by Habitat for Humanity Egypt and the proposals will be evaluated by an external committee from university professors and professionals from the fields of architecture, engineering and business innovation, and others.

The winners will receive an award to encourage the visibility of their projects as well as the support of Habitat for Humanity Egypt in connecting with and enrolling in additional programs supporting innovative solutions.
