i-icon World Bank Income Classification:Low Income The World Bank classifies economies for analytical purposes into four income groups: low, lower-middle, upper-middle, and high income. For this purpose it uses gross national income (GNI) per capita data in U.S. dollars, converted from local currency using the World Bank Atlas method, which is applied to smooth exchange rate fluctuations. i-icon Least Developed Country:Yes Since 1971, the United Nations has recognized LDCs as a category of States that are deemed highly disadvantaged in their development process, for structural, historical and also geographical reasons. Three criteria are used: per capita income, human assets, and economic vulnerability. i-icon Gender Inequality Index:0.575 GII is a composite metric of gender inequality using three dimensions: reproductive health, empowerment and the labour market. A low GII value indicates low inequality between women and men, and vice-versa. i-icon Gender Development Index:0.723 GDI measures gender inequalities in achievement in three basic dimensions of human development: health, education, and command over economic resources.

Strategic Note Outcome Progress Note Showing data of : 2022

The government is better able to prevent violence against women and girls (VAW&G) and deliver quality essential services to survivors, who are empowered to access and use them

VAW is considered to be a top priority to the Egyptian government. Egypt hasrecently increased the penalty for some of the main violations related to violence against women. For example, the Penal Code defining, and criminalizing sexual harassment (Article 306) was amended in 2021 to consider sexual harassment as a felony. The penalty for sexual harassment was increased from a minimum of one year in prison to a minimum of five years, or a penalty of up to 300,000 Egyptian pounds up from 20,000 pounds. In 2021, the Egyptian Cabinet also approved a bill to increase the maximum penalty for Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) to 20 years in prison. Also in 2021, the Prime Minister of Egypt announced the establishmentof the “One Stop Shop for the Protection of Women Victims of violence” to receive reports and cases from women survivors of violence and enable them to submit and follow-up on their case through one place, which will facilitate procedures and enhance women’s access to justice. The One-Stop-Shop will include representatives from all concerned national institutions and will provide essential services on site such as medical, legal, forensic, psychosocial, and social services to survivors. In 2022, the President requested legislators to do more to criminalise child marraige and to resolve the personal status legislation issues. The latter is not expected in 2023 but the former is anticipated.
