North Africa's Largest Urban Green Space
For almost a millennium assorted dust, debris and rubbish was piled up along the eastern rim of Cairo's medieval city walls...
But thanks to a $45m seven-year project by the Aga Khan Development Network, the dumping ground has been transformed into al-Azhar Park - North Africa's largest urban green space."
"...It's the kind of holistic, costly and complicated project that experts say the world needs many more of. "
