Geoffrey Payne, an expert in urban development that has advised international organizations such as the World Bank or UN-Habitat, also took part in the Workshop, which involved preparing detailed development proposals for a specific site (in Ismailia, Egypt) which are socially acceptable, economically viable and ecologically sustainable.
