plan. The plan aims at greening a two-way road of 2,420 meters long and 25 meters wide that links the south road to Hurghada airport and the main hotels and resorts. This will help absorbing part of air pollution near the city and resorts, and will increase carbon storage hence improving the GHG emission balance. On top of this, it will offer a major enhancement of quality of life in and around the City. The City Urban Green Plan (CUGP) will contribute to: • Increasing the contribution of overall Governorate strategic plan, • Maximizing utilization of domestic energy resource, • Enhancing rational and sustainable management of the city, • Reducing the intensity of energy consumption, • Ensuring a better urban setting, • Reduce GHG emissions, • Limit the environmental impact of the sectors emissions, and • Improve the quality of life and the urban environment.

The strategy set the objective for the city to be a sustainable city. This would be through a clean and green tourism activities based on clean energy production and green system in the tourism sector. The Governorate is also intending to support the plan to increase the landscape and green areas in main roads and upgrade the current southern road to Hurghada international airport in order to improve the urban condition using trees and plantation seedlings in the City of Hurghada in particular and Governorate in general. In addition, the Governorate is planning to the improve the urban spaces within the City of Hurghada and raise awareness of all stakeholders on the impact of climate change risks and adaptation actions and how the CUGP could assist as well as to support the city transitioning towards a world-class sustainable touristic destination. A vulnerability analysis of the City of Hurghada – Governorate of the Red Sea was carried out combining probability and impact (scale 1-3) of the 10 receptors, including tourists and inhabitants. The risk assessment, based on climate data available in Hurghada, indicated that tourism is ranked the second highest risk (level 2) in terms of probability and impact. Hence improving the landscaping would support this receptor. Therefore, this planned action #8 - City Urban Green Plan (CUGP) for increasing the City’s Urban Green Coverage is in line with the vision and strategy of the Governorate of Red Sea and support its’ implementation. Principal partners and stakeholders • Governorate of Red Sea – City of Hurghada (Municipality) • City Council represented by the Governor of Red Sea City of Hurghada (Beatification and Landscape) Contact person in the local authority Mr. Ayman Sultan, Planning Department, Governorate of Red Sea 2. Process Technical Process Increasing the plantation and Urban Green Coverage (UGC) is an interesting option for reducing Urban Heat Islands Effect (UHIE) and air pollution. It also might have a very marginal effect on cooling loads in buildings that are very close to the green areas. The Orthophotos flyover will help assessing hot spots of UHIE, particularly in the city centre, hence allowing the 181
