This chapter provides a descriptive analysis of the living conditions in the four research localities (all Kafr al-Elow, Dar al-Salam, Sayyida Zeinab, and Abkhas), based on answers to the survey questions, insights from the focus groups and the interviews, and observations. The project covers housing conditions; neighborhood life; the disposal of solid and liquid domestic waste; the state of water, air, and noise pollution; and such other problems as pests (insects and rodents), chemicals, and moral pollution. In addition to the physical facts of the case, the data of this project also reflect the attitudes of its respondents and participants. The picture for Cairo and rural site is broadly consistent with accounts of other major third world cities and countrysides. This chapter not only shows the conditions, but also the strategies that people adopt toward their problems and some of their attitudes toward their living circumstances.

Keywords:   living conditions, housing conditions, domestic waste, Cairo, rural site
