Abstract a series of environmental hazards as an impact of air pollution and climate change, as an example, the heat waves of over 40°C in Egypt and Greece and the burning forests in Turkey as well as the floods in Germany. (https://ec.europa.eu/clima/change/consequences_en). Developed countries and the early industrializers created their wealth and reached their high standards of living pumping into the atmosphere huge amount of Green House Gases (GHG) long before the world understood the consequences of climate change. Whereas developing countries are now faced by too many restrictions when it comes to industrialization as to keep the GHG gas level maintained. Putting these countries in a situation of not being able to achieve any progress (Hegazy 2014) (Ministry of State for Environmental Affairs 2010). The Kyoto Protocol has come up with the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) that aims to the cooperation between both rich and poor countries in order to achieve sustainable development in developing countries. As Egypt is one of the developing countries, there is a challenge whether it can achieve sustainable development while working on the development process the country is now implementing (Gerden 2018) So, this paper aims to develop new urban strategies to achieve sustainable development using CDM methods and technologies and air dispersion models for air pollution simulation and prediction, that would help in reducing the current air pollution problem and avoid it in the future. The study also aims to test the validity of the clean development mechanism (CDM) based adaptation urban strategies on the Egyptian case, along with solving the gap between the current Egyptian urban regulation system and strategies and the current air pollution rates in Cairo
