Compact Cities Electrified: Egypt

November 2022


Addressing the climate crisis will require rapid, sustained transformation in every country and every sector of industrial activity. In The Compact City Scenario – Electrified report, researchers from ITDP and the University of California, Davis (with support from the ClimateWorks Foundation) modeled the global changes that will be necessary to decarbonize urban passenger transport. The team found that only through vehicle electrification and modal shift combined can urban transport emissions be reduced enough to limit global warming to less than 1.5°C.

While this original report was both global and regional, ITDP is now producing a series of country-specific Compact Cities Electrified reports that will leverage local contexts and data to outline various regional scenarios for the future of urban transport.
