Expanding Our Impact

In recent years, Egypt has seen an increase in quality of life, extensive improvements in the education sector and a reduction in infant and maternal mortality rates. However, the country needs to maintain sustainable productivity and prosperity. Abt-led initiatives have strengthened workforce development and competitiveness, assessing how it impacts tourism, agribusiness and other sectors. Abt analyzed the potential impacts of climate change on Egypt’s economy, particularly its water supplies, agriculture, sea level and air quality. Abt also studied how to systematically organize health systems and institutional reforms.
