In a city of 20 million people and with air pollution almost 20 times the acceptable international standard, the Egyptian capital Cairo, craves green spaces. Despite a few parks dotted across this Middle Eastern concrete jungle, persistent urbanisation means that residents are now looking for new ways to find greenery.
