The Nile Ritz Carlton - Cairo
29.11.2016 to 01.12.2016



Following the success of SB13 Cairo the German University in Cairo – Architecture and Urban Design (GUC) and The German-Arab Chamber of Industry and Commerce (GACIC) are organizing under the auspices of H.E. Dr. Mostafa Madbouly, Minister of Housing, Utilities and Urban Communities the Sustainable Built Environment Conference 2016 (SBE 16) in Cairo, which will take place from 29th of November till the 1st of December at the Nile Ritz Carlton Hotel.

The objective of SBE16 Cairo is to address the challenges facing the region. Major challenges facing Egypt include but are not limited to the provision of energy and water. Nevertheless, in order to ensure an efficient and sustainable use of the scarce resources, our practices towards the built environment should be revised to be proactive to accommodate the rapidly urbanized region. The conference is action oriented rather than merely a scientific gathering; and thus puts emphasis on the importance of ‘integrating’ stakeholders, processes, and technology to ensure a sustainable living for all.

SBE16 Cairo is an opportunity for collaboration and therefore, should not be missed. ‘Integrate’ prompts not only the action of ‘integration’, but most importantly it prompts determination; and thus, is an urgent call for ‘speedy’ actions…

SBE16 Cairo is part of the international conference series (SBE16-17) which will be concluded by the World Sustainable Built Environment Conference WSBE17 Hong Kong. The event is the pre-eminent international conference series on sustainable building and construction and places a core emphasis on peer-reviewed papers, presentations of regional policy papers, displays of pre-evaluated projects and high-quality commercial exhibits.
