Poverty Solutions Mapping Egypt 2011 will
encourage the efficiency and effectiveness of poverty
relief efforts, principally via creating one simple multi-layer
map to illustrate the gaps where no Poverty Solutions
in Egypt are being implemented. It will show with compelling
clarity a) unemployment poverty at relative levels and
b) locations of sustainable job training support and encouragement
and c) it can be published in an Egyptian national newspaper
and also on-line, for all Egyptian leaders and international
Donors to see.
The vision is for mapping the population
in Egypt to identify poverty so as to provide a tool to
help the Egyptian government and other development agencies
and Donors to target and plan efficient intervention strategies
to lift Egyptian people out of poverty. And, critically,
to be seen to be trying to lift people out of poverty.
This mapping wil provide an important feedback loop for
democracy to function with more transparency and accountability,
as such it will be freely available to all, without political
or sectarian bias. It will inspire action at grass-roots,
to create sustainable job opportunities, thus contributing
directly to peace and therefore making the transition
to democracy far more stable.
The vision is to make a ‘Poverty Solutions Map’
to Inspire Leaders within the political, business, social
and academic spheres, as well as the NGO and Donor community,
And, critically, to be seen to be trying to Act.

Action = Peaceful Democratic Transition
It will show where the relative greatest needs are located
for training young people and offering micro-credit solutions.
The map will also show relative poverty, indicated by
unemployment. It will show the existing Technical Vocational
Education and Training (TVET) and micro-credit programs
that address issues in unemployment. The map will show
where there are GAPS – where no solutions are being
implemented, or the solutions are not powerful enough.
This map will provide a tool to help assist transparency
of information, from the grass roots vocational training
and micro-credit up to Members of Parliament and the Prime
Minister – information affecting a critical constituency
that can either cause unparalleled economic growth, or
alternatively, unhindered civil violence and other disruption
– the youth of Egypt.
