Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan sign deal to end Nile dispute

Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan sign deal to end Nile dispute | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it
Three African leaders sign an initial deal to end a long-running dispute over the sharing of Nile waters and the building of Africa's biggest hydroelectric dam.

rodrick rajive lal's insight:

The tripartite dispute on the sharingof the waters of the Nile between Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia was an ongoing issue that failed to get resolved for decades. Now it seems the three countries have finally managed to settle their disputes. Earlier there was alot of mudlsinging  accusations and counter accusations, and blamegames where particular countries would blame droughts and other humanitarian disasters on others saying that they had held back the water that was due to them. In a region that is often under the state of drought, jusdicious sharing of the waters of the Nile, both the Blue Nile and the White Nile will help put an end to the suffering of common people!

85% of the Nile's water comes from the Blue Nile that originates in the Ethiopian highlands--it is the Blue Nile that Ethiopia has been working on damming since 2011.  The Grand Ethiopia Renaissance Dam (GERD) will be located near the border with Sudan (see in Google Maps).  Prior to this trilateral agreement, Egypt and Sudan received the majority of the Nile's waters because of outdated colonial-era treaties that ignored upstream riparian states.  This explains why in the past, Egypt was so adamantly opposed to Ethiopia's plan fearing that their water supply with be threatened.  Today though, the Egyptian President said, "We have chosen cooperation, and to trust one another for the sake of development."

This article shows how important it is for countries to have good relationships with one another. This is an example of political geography. Diverting the Nile would help Ethiopia immensely, producing electricity and providing a water source. Egypt and Sudan were able to create a compromise and agree to share, and a long dispute is now over.
