    New Borg El Arab was inaugurated in 1988 and is seen as the natural extension of Alexandria, as well as one of the most important industrial areas in Egypt. Transforming New Borg El Arab City into an EcoCity was one of the main drivers for EcoNBC project (EcoCity Capacity Building in New Borg El Arab City). Carrying out a Feasibility Study to explore more in detail the viability of the idea was one of the first steps to be taken towards that transformation. In this case, it is the result of the joint effort of a team of Finnish and Egyptian experts through a series of structured workshops that took place both in Finland and Egypt, and a number of focused discussions that involved also key stakeholders.
