• Increased use of

• Increased use of renewable energy as an alternative to non-renewable sources. • Use of advanced locally-appropriate and more-efficient fossil fuel technologies, which is less-emitting. • Energy efficiency is the cornerstone to be targeted by policy makers to decouple demand on energy and economic growth. Implementation plan Component 1: The City of Hurghada first needs to get a more sophisticated understanding of mobility needs across the city and issues to be solved: • Traffic movements and intensity in different parts of the city, • Mobility habits of residents, • Needs for goods transport management, • Main issues to be solved (traffic jam, air pollution, GHG emissions), and • Specific assessment of tourists’ transport needs and evolution of fluvial circulation management and transport needs. This scoping study will gather all information and data required to design the most appropriate master plan. Component 2: From the detailed description of issues at stake, the study will draw strategic priorities with a double objective in mind – improve mobility services for people, goods, and tourists while reducing the environmental foot print of the transport sector and its interaction within the city urban area and shores. This could include: • Designing a new organisation of transport services integrating transport needs and city planning policies, while prioritizing collective / public transportation instead of private / individual vehicles and active modes of mobility for people (walking and biking) in particular by providing safer conditions for the users, • Structuring the urban transport sector by empowering a public transport authority to take action for the improvement of transport in and around the city. In the case of the City of Hurghada, this would mean a closer collaboration between the Governorate, GOPP and Traffic Department, • Review traffic management rules and circulation routes to improve the flow of traffic, • Explore innovative solution that would significantly change the mobility paradigm in Hurghada (tramway, RTB, electrical buses in reserved lane, etc.), • Developing incentives as well as regulation measures adding constraints on the use of private motor vehicles and making other modes a more attractive choice, • Implementing a common methodology to measure GHG emissions, report on them and monitor all other benefits deriving from the development of sustainable urban and water transport and access to the shores of Hurghada. Component 3: will articulate the different options in comprehensive scenarios taking into account all components of the evolution of mobility services (efficiency, comfort, energy consumption and GHG) and will assess the environmental impacts of the different proposed scenarios. Component 4: will assess costs of the preferred scenario to help the Municipality Council making the appropriate choice with the best return on investment. Component 5: Institution capacity building is essential to prepare and oversee the implementation of the master plan. This would involve cost estimate, feasibility studies, funding schemes. Component 6: Awareness raising is vital to change the current mode of transport to public sharing modality and to assist in the implementation of the plan and in transforming the city to be a green city (bicycles, small fishing and diving boat, cruises and boats to run by gas not fossil fuel and clean transport. 114

3. Organization and procedures Formal approval City council represented by the Governor of Red Sea needs to decide for the implementation of such an investigation in coordination with GOPP investigation. This would include the following entities: • Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation • Governor of the Red Sea Staff allocated to prepare, implement, monitor action The following services will contribute: • Governorate of the Red Sea, • City of Hurghada, • City Council – Hurghada represented by the Governor, and • GOPP. • City Council represented by the Governor • Traffic Department – City of Hurghada • Ministry of Local Development Staff training needs Governorate (Municipality) and Traffic Department staff, related to the issue of Sustainable Mobility, need to receive coaching and training on two subjects: • Strategic management of mobility issues, and • Technical and organisational solutions to be promoted, A Special Strategic Unit to be developed and structured to oversee the training of staff and all concerned as well as the implementation of the plan at the governorate. Role of Partners - Stakeholders (taxi drivers, transport companies, traffic department, Tourist department, Hotels and resorts. private users, all big institutions generating a lot of transport needs – schools, hospitals, etc.) should be invited to specific workshop to design the strategic road map to improve urban mobility, make this design process as inclusive as possible. - Training also needs to transfer the message of clean and green transport. 4. Summary of related Awareness Raising actions A communication plan needs to be developed to highlight the benefits of a new strategic and comprehensive sustainable mobility plan to brand the City of Hurghada as a clean and green city including bike lanes and dedicated pedestrian walkways for each and every individual and for the general benefit of the City of Hurghada. The Awareness Raising Programme (ARP), would include lectures and workshops for staff and citizens that could encompass several actions: - The creation of a permanent municipal information point, - The organisation of an open house, - The publication of articles in local and regional newspapers, - The distribution of brochures and posters, - The distribution of an information letter that includes current events on sustainability and local success stories: • Information on national energy policies and local implications, • The prevailing energy conditions in the municipality, and • The state of progress of the different actions implemented within the framework of the sustainable energy strategy and the SECAP. Successful projects in national and foreign municipalities, notably in municipalities that are members of the Convention of Mayors (CoM). 115
