Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

Quseir is a small city on the east African Red Sea coast, which in addition to being surrounded by rich coral reserves, boasts a valuable historical heritage that offers a significant potential as a tourist attraction. The aim of the action plan was to integrate and coordinate the life long sustainable utilization and historic preservation of the city. Historical buildings within the historic core were identified and surveyed to determine their physical condition. Infra structure and public services were also assessed. A questionnaire was designed for participatory feedback from local residents to assess their attitudes and wishes pertaining to the development of the city. Socio-economic study for the beautification of Al-Quseir was also conducted. A strategy for a comprehensive action plan has been developed in response to the constraints and requirements discovered through the assessment process.
