The case study chosen for the purpose of this study is located in shabramant Mont village, Giza governorate, located on the south west of greater Cairo. The village has developed severe problems with localized flooding during the Nile inundation season. Several houses have collapsed, forcing families to double up in already crowded conditions.The objectives of this study is to assess the environmental and social impacts associated with products, services concepts and the role of the local authorities in promoting the design for sustainability. It also aims to draw on systematic, creative and innovative approaches to address the transition towards more sustainable environment. The study points to the fact that in order to connect environmental sustainability and sustainable development from policy to practice there are new ways to be conducted among professionals, research institutes, industry, private sectors and decision makers and local authorities.
