Water of the Nile: Geography and Geopolitics
Transcript of Water of the Nile: Geography and Geopolitics
Legal Rights to the Nile are dominated by
Egypt and Sudan because of two decrees
signed during the colonial era:
1929 Nile Water Agreement
1959 Agreement for the Full Utilization
of the Nile
These two documents allow Egypt and Sudan
to control 90 % of the river water
The Nile is fed by two lakes
from Ethiopia and Uganda.
At over 4,000 miles
long, flowing from south
to north, the Nile winds
through 11 countries. It
knows no boundaries.

to revamp water sharing laws through peaceful negotiation.
