Egyptian government pushes bike project to reduce traffic, pollution ahead of COP27

In lead-up to COP27, the Egyptian government is exploring ways to encourage citizens to ride bicycles.

CAIRO — Egypt will roll out the Cairo Bike project in mid-July, promoting the use of bicycles as an alternative means of transportation in the Egyptian capital Cairo.

The project comes in the days leading up to the COP27 Climate Summit, which Egypt is scheduled to host Nov. 2-18 in Sharm El-Sheikh. The summit presents itself as a chance for Egypt to step up efforts and implement projects aimed at reducing climate change while finding partners, financing and investments interested in green technology.
