Construction sector has been identified as one of the main sectors that are amenable to the use of mediation. Three awareness-raising seminars on the benefits of mediation in construction disputes have been conducted by different international consultants. The events were well-received, and repeated requests have been made to provide further technical assistance to promote the use of mediation in construction disputes.
Responding to the need, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) in collaboration with CRCICA launched a construction mediation project to promote the use of mediation in construction disputes through system design, workshops, capacity building and training. Within this context, CRCICA calls upon a group of experts in the construction industry to establish a Construction Mediation Working Group (CMWG) to drive forward the effective implementation of mediation in the Egyptian Construction Sector. Ms. Aisha Nadar, an international construction consultant, will provide technical assistance to help the Group and the supporting Institutions achieve the goals of the Project.
THE CMWG will start its work by tailoring the objectives of the Project to Egyptian Construction Industry, identifying construction mediation oppositions and diagnosing possible training needs. It is noteworthy that construction mediation trainings will take place in December 2014.
