This study seeks to improve the performance of nature reserves in Egypt through the use of urban metrics. According to the study, adding urban factors such as population density, land use patterns, and infrastructure development can provide valuable insights into how surrounding urban areas affect reserves. By studying these variables, conservation managers can gain a better understanding of the difficulties and opportunities presented by urbanization and develop strategies to improve the performance of reserves. The study emphasizes the importance of integrating urban planning with environmental conservation initiatives to ensure that natural reserves in Egypt are managed sustainably. It guides policymakers and conservation practitioners in making informed decisions and implementing effective management strategies that balance urban development and nature conservation.

Nature reserves in Egypt are established and managed by the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency, which works in cooperation with local communities, non-governmental organizations and international organizations. The primary goal of these reserves is to preserve Egypt's natural heritage while promoting sustainable development and eco-tourism.
