This chapter presents a study that analyzes the attitudes, opinions, and experiences of many people in urban and rural Egypt. This study provides a baseline of information for imagining forms of cooperation that can develop and protect an environmentally sustainable and exemplary Egypt in the twenty-first century. It bears on other issues that are central to current discussions in Egypt. It shows the limited role of NGOs and grassroots actions, the impact on people of development programs and trends, the creative ability of people to organize themselves through cooperation and collective action, the patterns of governance, and the role of the state. In addition, this study throws light on such issues as the place of gender and class distinctions in Egyptian life, and the differences and similarities between urban and rural cultures.

Keywords:   rural Egypt, environmentally sustainable, development programs, governance, Egyptian life
