Public Engagement

Assistance programs are developed by engagement with the local communities so we can better understand their aspirations and concerns in addition to maintaining close relationships with the Beheira officials.

Public Consultations were conducted pre-project start as part of the Environmental Impact Assessment meeting the World Bank’s criteria. The views of the public, government officials and NGO's were solicited by a dedicated socio-economic study and at public meetings held in Idku, Damanhur and Cairo. The input from this consultation process was considered to minimize the negative impacts and maximize the benefits to the local community.

ELNG sets high standards for its community projects and has undertaken a number of projects to engage closely with the local community of ‘El Beheira Governorate and Idku. Egyptian LNG won three BG chairman’s awards in recognition of its community engagement for education of road safety in Behiera and Idku schools, funding a sustainable water supply project in addition to sustainable local community employment.

More examples of this engagement include the following initiatives:
