About us

Regional Development Centre in Cairo (RDC Cairo), based in Cairo Egypt since 1973, is one of the nine RDCs around the world. The main role of the center is to function as a "branch office" of the IAAF supporting the work of 19 Arab Member Federations and providing a focal point for the programme of development actions in this area. RDC Cairo follows the IAAF strategy for the worldwide development of Athletics which is identifying the training of specialist personnel to carry out the key functions required for the operation of the sport as a key service to IAAF Member Federations.

RDC Cairo serves 19 Arabic-speaking Africa & Asia countries which are: ALG, BRN, EGY, IRQ, JOR, KUW, LBA, LIB, MAR, OMA, PLE, QAT, KSA, SUD, SYR, TUN, UAE, YEM, MTN. 

The centre organizes from six to seven core activities yearly, which are precisely picked up to meet the needs of our Member Federations in different fields like coaching education, administration , officiating , IT , anti-doping, marketing.....etc.

The philosophy of the RDC Cairo is to focus on Member Federation needs, and helping them help themselves. The slogan of RDC Cairo is: “Towards Better Athletics".
