Its territory, almost entirely included in the African continent, also includes an Asian portion, that beyond the canal and the Gulf of Suez: the Sinai peninsula. The S and W borders are conventional, established at the time of the British protectorate.. Egypt is essentially identified with the Nile valley, the thin green strip, irrigated and all densely populated, which winds through the desert surfaces, expanding into the great delta range facing the Mediterranean. This identification makes Egypt an almost unique country. It is, as Herodotus wrote, a “gift of the Nile”; the waters of the great river in fact dispense life in a land that is otherwise arid, desolate, a continuation of the Saharan environment. For millennia the Nile has been a coagulating axis of human activity and settlements, the primary factor of a civilization linked to water that can be considered among the highest, and in some respects mysterious, among those that flourished in antiquity; a clear ethnic homogeneity and a strong concentration of the population in a small area stand out here. If this contributes to making Egypt a very vital country, at the same time it creates problems that are very difficult to solve. Placed in an ideal position of encounter between different civilizations, struggling between an Asian and an African dimension, we observe, in contemporary Egypt, an evident social and political instability, the result of the repercussions determined by the British colonial policy, which has triggered a series of battles between the different factions. The result is that, at the beginning of the 21st century, the country does not yet seem to have found a balance between the thrusts generated by the three Islamic, Arab and Mediterranean identities. Complicating the already difficult situation were the results of the so-called Arab Spring, the series of protests that involved numerous countries in North Africa and the Middle East. In Egypt, following serious protests that began in January 2011 and violently repressed, President Hosni Mubarak resigned, leaving power in the hands of a military junta. Currently, the country is still looking for a strenuous normalization, after the coup d’état of 2013 followed by elections in June 2014 which saw the birth of a government that on the one hand presents itself as a guarantor of religious freedom and a barrier against jihadist fundamentalism. According to COUNTRYAAH, Egypt is a nation in Northern Africa, the capital city of which is Cairo. The latest population of Egypt is 102,334,415.

The Nile Valley is essentially one large oasis in a Saharan climate region. The Mediterranean influences are felt, very marginally, only in the coastal area, acting both on the value of rainfall and on that of temperatures. In Alexandria there are thermal values ​​ranging between 13-14 ° C in January and 26-27 ° C in July; in Cairo, more internally, the July averages are around 28-29 ° C. In the Middle and Upper Egypt continentality accentuates the annual and daily temperature variations, while the higher latitude determines July averages of 32-33 ° C (in January they do not exceed 16 ºC). As for rainfall, on the coast there are annual values ​​much lower than those in the Mediterranean area: in Alexandria, especially in the winter months, 150-170 mm of rain can fall per year, which drops to just 40-50 mm in Cairo; in Aswân it may not rain for years. The Egyptian climate is conditioned by the predominant influences of the tropical-continental air masses. The cyclonic manifestations typical of the Mediterranean area occur in the winter months, during which rainfall falls (rainy days in Lower Egypt are never more than 25, mostly concentrated in December). The winds are due to the exchanges of air between the Mediterranean and the interior etesii, drawn towards the S by the low pressures caused by the warming of desert surfaces; from the inside, on the other hand, between March and June, the khamsin blows, a hot, suffocating wind coming from the southern quadrants, attracted by the low Mediterranean pressures.
