Process The Green City Awareness Unit (GCAU) will be a key component of the SECAP implementation, as most of the impacts expected for the action plan, depends on the adequate mobilization and engagement of stakeholders to cease the opportunities offered to make the City Green and doing so contribute to the success of the SECAP. The planned action is set through the following assessments and development: - Preliminary plan and specific study of developing the Green City Awareness Unit - GCAU, - Allocating Staff for the GCAU, - Involvement of Stakeholders, and - Commence the GCAC programme. Administrative and coordination process - Governorate of the Red Sea – City of Hurghada (Municipal), - Governor’s to approve the plan and its targets, - City Council represented by the Governor approval, and - Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation (MoIIC) – international investment approvals. Government and Administrative Procedures and Approvals - Initial approval of the Governorate (Municipality) of the GCAU, and - Governor’s to approve the final set up and structure of GCAU and its targets. 3. Technical description Link to Governorate (municipal) development plan The SECAP is built on three drivers: a) reduce energy consumption; b) develop energy production; and c) climate adaptation actions. It is vital to develop a comprehensive planning of the Green City Awareness Unit to attain the vision of the Governorate of the Red Sea in making the City of Hurghada Carbon Neutral and improving quality of life in the city sustainable urban area, yet attaining Egypt’s vision 2030. It will also enhance clean energy profile and improve the Governorate sustainable energy prospectus, and still contribute to achieving meeting Egypt’s vision and Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS) 2030. In this respect, the Governorate will particularly contribute to Egypt’s SDS key performance indicators (KPIs) that are relevant to SECAP, mainly in Energy, Urban development, Environment, and Domestic energy policy, e.g., Energy and Environment: - Secure energy resources, - Increase reliance on local resources, - Reduce the intensity of energy consumption, and - Raise the actual economic contribution of energy sector in the national income. The Action #7 – Green City Awareness Unit (GCAU) would also support the Governorate of the Red Sea’ vision and strategy and achieve the set policies in the Nation Climate Change Communication report, mainly the policies targeting development that is more sustainable based on related pillars: 174

1. More efficient use of energy, especially by end user as energy efficiency is the cornerstone to be targeted by policy makers to decouple demand on energy and economic growth. 2. Increased use of renewable energy as an alternative to non-renewable sources. 3. Improve waste management and reduce littering to preserve the marine environment. Implementation plan Component 1: The Governorate first needs to set up the Green City Awareness Unit GCAU to ensure successful executing of the SECAP and accomplish the Governorate’s vision and strategy Component 2: The Governorate’s Green City Awareness Unit (GCAU) will be a key component of support for other planned actions developed for the City of Hurghada and the south region of the Governorate. In addition, the GCAU will launch its mission focusing on three priority targets – Governorate (municipality) staff; school teachers and management, office managers, airport staff and hotels owners as well as all tourism operators – to inform on issues at stake regarding Green City elements, climate change mitigation and adaptation, energy management and environment challenges in the city, provide guidance to behavioural changes, and invite all stakeholders to engage in concrete actions to help greening the City of Hurghada, including: reducing energy consumption at no cost, and improve the urban environment (preserving water, reducing waste and littering to promote a cleaner city). The Green City Unit (GCU) will develop the city branding its activities and engaging cooperation with existing groups and institutions: - Spreading information and training material (posters, brochures, stickers, etc.) to remind everyone of the importance of Green and Resilient City (GRC). This must include training given by Governorate (Municipality) employees, - Develop an annual event “Energy festival or Energy day” where best practices could be demonstrated and innovative projects celebrated. Such a festival could be promoted through a large advertising campaign mobilising all traditional media but also social networks online, - Unroll specific awareness campaigns among specific target groups, and - Developing a network of “Positive Green schools” and “Positive Green Hotel” producing more energy than they consume and less waste, through a combination of GRC measure, including energy conservation, energy efficiency and green waste and the development of Solar PV and axial wind turbines on schools’ roofs. Also, school teachers and management, and hotel management should be engaged in such Awareness programmes to use all the potential of the technical development, as support for training teachers and staff and inform pupils. Component 3: The City of Hurghada – Governorate of the Red Sea wishes to engage in a specific programme with schools: improved design for 5 schools and 10 hotels per year, refurbish old schools, raise child awareness, and develop specific projects engaging school pupils in the GRC including energy saving activities, - Mobilise families through the training of women/mothers, and - Promote an awareness raising campaign in mosques, developing solar PV equipment and wind axial turbines and inviting imams to promote responsible behaviour regarding GRC, and - Raising awareness would be the support to gather more official, staff, university researchers, businessmen, communication experts and local citizen groups, with the Governorate (Municipality) team, to work together on a broad mobilization to Green and Resilient City (GRC) and reduce energy consumption and develop renewable energy production. Raising awareness should also be seen as a tool to push citizens to take ownership of the GRC and energy saving issues, engage in energy conservation efforts or participate in renewable energies take off, and doing so, actively contribute to the implementation of the local and sustainable Green City of Hurghada, which will reduce dependency on fossil fuel resources and will improve local economy. 175
