With its population growing faster than ever and more people moving to the city, Egypt's housing crisis continues to grow. Despite the increasing need for more housing, the number of abandoned and vacant houses continues to rise.
More than halfway complete, Ethiopia's Renaissance Dam promises to provide the African country with a sustainable source of electricity. We speak to experts in Addis Ababa and Cairo on the impact that the dam will have on people in both countries.
As the governorate of Cairo announces the launch of the city's first bike-sharing project, we speak to UN-Habitat Program Officer Salma Mousallem about whether cycling can act as a tool to fulfil last mile journeys.
In this project that combines photography and text, visual artist and writer Alya Sorour explores Cairo, Paris and New York as a flâneur - as a wanderer seeking to understand three cities that have influenced her life in various ways at different times. From desolate landscapes and voyeuristic angles, Sorour's astute observations about capitalism, society and the unintended consequences of 19th century urban design result in a collection of photographs that are at times striking, and at others, haunting. The text - an edited version of her preface to the project - explains her journey from initiation to completion and charts her attempts to grapple with urban wanderings.
