The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Cairo and the Ministry of Environment of the Arab Republic of Egypt have the pleasure to invite you to the 78th Cairo Climate Talks (CCT)
The transportation sector is responsible for the largest share of global greenhouse gas emissions at currently 29%. The Minister of Public Enterprise Sector announced that Egypt will start producing electric cars in 2022. Electric-powered vehicles produce less smog and direct exhaust which has a direct effect on improving the public health, especially in crowded cities like Cairo. Electric vehicles also have no direct emissions and have the potential of being carbon neutral when electricity is produced from a renewable source.
In this CCT we will discuss the potentials as well as challenges of e-mobility in Egypt and Germany.
