Egypt is now at risk of drought, and Cairo will be hurt. It is the sixth-most vulnerable city to environmental risks and the least resilient among 50 global cities. The government hasn't explored the impact of drought on the urban sector as it has on the agricultural one. Besides, it has recently witnessed new desert megacities and luxurious residential communities that will put more pressure on water resources. Globally, cities are promoting resilience to deal with drought, whether by reducing water demand or increasing supply. So, the study aims to explore urban and landscaping techniques that can improve the drought resilience of those residential areas currently experiencing huge expansions in Cairo. A theoretical framework was developed, and then the compatibility in the Egyptian context was evaluated using a case study approach. Madinaty was selected based on expert informal interviews as the most likely case for applying theoretical techniques. Qualitative methods were used to analyze how well they were applied after collecting the primary data using semi-structured interviews, direct observation, and documentary analysis. Results show that Madianty applied a set of techniques to increase its water supply rather than reduce consumption, in contrast to what is commonly used by cities globally.
