Egypt’s power sector sees 88.4% drop in impact from natural hazards

The economic losses resulting from floods, heavy rains, and dust storms in the Egyptian electricity sector amounted to 6.5 million Egyptian pounds in 2022, according to a report released by Egypt’s Central Agency for Public Mobilisation and Statistics (CAPMAS).

This represents a significant decline compared to 55.9 million Egyptian pounds in 2021, marking a decrease of 88.4 per cent.

The significant drop in economic losses resulting from such natural hazards highlights improved resilience and mitigation measures implemented by the electricity sector.

The same report indicated that the quantity of treated sewage water used in agriculture in the Delta reached 7,689 million cubic metres in 2022, compared to 6,750 million cubic metres in 2018, an increase of 13.9 per cent.
