- National Action Plan for Adaptation – NAPA, and - Climate Change Risk Management Programme – CCRMP, MoEnv (2013). Initiatives - Low Emission Capacity Building – UNDP, MoEnv and EEAA (2013 – 2016), Institutions and Rating Systems: - Central Unit for Sustainable Cities and Renewable Energy – CUSCRE (2014), - Green Pyramid Rating System – GPRS (2012), and - The Egyptian Green Building Council Ministerial Decree (2009). Governorate and Municipal vision and strategy The Governorate of Luxor developed a Green City Strategy 2030 - GCS “Luxor the Heritage City of the World” that was launched on June 14, 2014. However, the implementation road map of the GCS has not been published yet. The Governorate of Luxor also joined the Resilient Cities Acceleration Initiative (RCAI) in its 3 rd phase with the objective to assist selected cities to be more resilient in confronting environmental challenges and counterbalance the impact of CC risks on the socioeconomic life 63 . Keeping in mind its specific values and the local context, the City of Luxor develops a strategy consistent with Egypt’s Vision 2030, Energy Strategy 2035 and National SDS 2030. This strategy is structured around two folds: - Reduce energy consumption in all sectors through energy conservation and efficiency, in order to provide better services while reducing costs and impacts, and - Promote energy production from locally available renewable resources in order to cover as far as possible energy needs from these decarbonised sources. The City of Luxor - Governorate of Luxor developed and announced a Strategic Plan 2017, which promotes many projects in the areas of infrastructure. The strategy is centred on the objective of promoting Luxor as a green city. Within this strategy promoting clean and green transport system and sustainable water mobility in the Nile river is absolutely central to reduce energy consumption and lower CO 2 emissions that impacts air quality and the climate. In addition, the Governorate is also intending to support the plan by informing and raising awareness of all Governorate’ staff and citizens on the impact of climate change, upcoming risks and adaptation actions, as well as the importance of applying sustainable energy measures. The City of Luxor - Governorate of Luxor is planning to implement the Green Residential Plan (GRP) – based on clean energy production and green solutions in the building sector. To support the vision in making the city Green, the City of Luxor plans to: - Expand the natural gas network to most of the residential buildings, - Support the GRP to inform and raise the awareness all stakeholders including staff, citizens as well all companies working in RE to support the plan and to transfer to the city to be green city, especially the building sector, - Inform stakeholders of the necessity of integrating solar PV and SWH systems to heat water, and 63 150

- Reduce fossil fuel consumption in the sector to mitigate GHG emissions from the City of Luxor. It is important to note that the vulnerability analysis of the City of Luxor – Governorate of the Luxor, carried out by combining the results of the probability and impact (scale 1-3) of the 10 receptors, including Buildings' stock and Materials (BSMs), indicated that BSMs is ranked the third highest risk (level 3) in terms of probability and impact. Therefore, this planned action # 3 Green Residential Plan (GRP) – City of Luxor is in line with the tentative vision and strategy of the Governorate of Luxor and support its implementation. Principal partners and stakeholders • Governorate of Luxor – City of Luxor (Municipality) • City Council represented by the Governor of Luxor • Building owners, mothers and children • Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources (MoPMRs) - Egypt Gas Holding Company (EGAS) - Ganoub El Wady Holding Company – Governorate of Luxor - Egyptian Gas Company - Luxor • Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy (MoERE) - New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA) • Ministry of National Housing and Building Research Centre (HBRC) - Egyptian Green Building Council - Green Building Unit (GBU) • Ministry of Environment (MoEnv) – EEAA • Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation (MoIIC) Contact person in the local authority Dr Ramadan Seddik, Director of Environmental Affairs, Governorate of Luxor 2. Process Technical Process Applying green measures in the residential building sector is an interesting option for reducing energy consumption and lower GHG emissions. This action is set through the following assessments and development: • Get a detailed understanding of the residential sector and its pattern in energy use; - Run a detailed assessment of sample of residential buildings (up to 500 units) to get a detailed understanding of building typologies and their energy profile. This assessment will help defining the best targets to implement the GRP on a first group of buildings offering the best potential for 151
