CSE 2011/036: Improving productivity in farming systems of the Nile Delta - final report
Publication Code: 
Dr Jim Fortune

This Final Report is a record of significant interactions between Australian and Egyptian partners in establishing the foundations for a project of significance for Egypt.  In 2010 the Australian Government initiated discussions to build partnerships to support development objectives for Egypt.  Australia provided a socio-economic study of farmers in the Meet Yazid Command area of the Nile Delta to ensure that knowledge of farming systems in that region and the challenges faced by its farmers were strongly and appropriately reflected in the design of a large project on improving productivity in farming systems of the Nile Delta.  The aim of this Report is to reflect the collective experience of all partners and to demonstrate pathways where the project objectives can be managed in a more enduring way by Egyptian agencies and other potential stakeholders and investors.
