Abstract

This paper seeks to answer the question of what are the main actors and institutions that contribute to environmental public policy change in Egypt? By examining the case of solid waste management in Egypt, the paper will discuss how environmental public policies are influenced by various organizations. The paper will also analyse various related variables: local, regional and international legal agreements; international donors, national environmental policy plans; and sustainable development strategies, environmental ministries and agencies, as well as the role of public awareness.The study uses the partnership and institutional approaches as the main theoretical approaches to the research. Thus, this study examines how partners interact in shaping the perception of society regarding the importance of environmental issues in general and solid waste management in particular in achieving sustainable development.

Keywords: Environmental Public Policy, Sustainable Development, International Donors, Solid Waste Management
