Our diverse experience and engaged teams have gained the trust of governmental counterparts through our work on national public sector reform efforts. We have led the development of national strategies across multiple sectors, building organizational capacity and design structure, to transform management and communication. We have also worked on organizational development frameworks and implementation, in depth stakeholder mapping, tailored capacity building programs for key stakeholders, change management plans and execution, strategic communication and advocacy programs, and social behavioural change systems for internal and external stakeholders and managing digital transformation. Our extensive work in this field includes projects with Ministry of Education and Technical Education, Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Petroleum, Ministry of Trade and Industry, and the Ministry of Local Development. Our close links put us at the cutting-edge of new regulation, working with policymakers and corporate entities to consult on new laws and initiatives.
Egypt resides over multiple entities responsible for the enhancement of mobility in Greater Cairo, but the city still faces setbacks and continuous challenges. In an attempt at resolving issues such as institutional fragmentation, insufficient financial resource, poor public transport, aggravated traffic congestion and high accident rates, the World Bank Group in collaboration with the most influential players within the transport sector, mandated IDOM and CID Consulting to develop the Greater Cairo Transport Regulatory Authority (GCTRA).
USAID had a bold ambition to increase girls’ access to primary and preparatory education, and improve literacy and learning rates in Egyptian public schools. In order to do so, CID Consulting worked as part of a consortium led by RTI to implement the Girls Improved Learning Outcomes (GILO) project.
As part of its plan to ensure sustainable energy supply through investment in the renewable sector, the government of Egypt launched a large scale feed-in tariff program in the governorate of Aswan. The New and Renewable Energy Agency (NREA) leased out a large plot of land near the neighbouring village of Benban with plans to erect one of the largest solar farms in the world – essentially comprised of over 30 individual solar farms. Due to the size and complexity of the undertaking, key project stakeholders – namely the relevant governmental entities, the financial institutions providing loans, and the private sector renewable energy developers – opted to manage this as one large complex.
In order to support the Government of Egypt’s ambitious plans to increase the country’s exports, USAID designed a project focused on trade facilitation and export development. As part of a consortium led by Nathan Associates, CID Consulting was tasked with engaging the private sector as a key driver of export growth through building the capacity of SMEs to export, as well as supporting in export marketing to ensure Egyptian firms were able to successfully leverage on export opportunities and address export market needs.
The Ministry of Transport, supported by the World Bank, sought to transition the River Transport Authority (RTA) from its existing role towards becoming a more regulatory authority capable of overseeing the provision of efficient transport services.
In 2016 the Ministry of Petroleum needed to design and implement a communication strategy to support the implementation of Egypt’s fuel reform program. In 2018, the Ministry called upon us again to work on a strategic communications framework for the launch and implementation of a new modernisation program, which included a major and comprehensive overhaul of the oil and gas sector at large. This sought to transform the oil and gas sector from a service driven sector, to a profitable value-add sector, positioning Egypt as a leading Energy Hub within five years.
