      The book is about the everyday politics of water distribution and use in Egypt. Accounts of water in the Nile Basin often focus on the transboundary dimensions of this river, which is shared by 11 countries, and on the political conflicts that have arisen over . Ethiopia said Tuesday that its first-year target has been reached for filling a mega-dam on the Blue Nile River that has stoked tensions with downstream neighbours Egypt and Sudan. The project has.

      In the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI), a partnership initiated and led by the riparian states of the Nile River through the Council of Ministers of Water Affairs of the Nile Basin states (Nile-COM), was created. The NBI programme consists of two complementary subprogrammes: the Shared Vision Program and the Subsidiary Action Program. Compared with the flashy floods of the Tigris and the Euphrates, the historic Nile flood was much more benign, predictable, and timely. As is the case today, most of its flow originated from monsoon-type rains in the Ethiopian highlands. The remainder came from the upper watershed of the White Nile .

Lyons. The Nile Basin The Nile River, with an estimated length of over km, is the longest river flowing from south to north over 35 degrees of latitude. It is fed by two main river systems: the White Nile, with its sources on the Equatorial Lake Plateau (Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya, Zaire and Uganda), and the Blue Nile, with its sources in.

The flooding of the Nile is the result of the yearly monsoon between May and August causing enormous precipitations on the Ethiopian Highlands whose summits reach heights of up to m (14, ft).

Most of this rainwater is taken by the Blue Nile and by the Atbarah River into the Nile, while a less important amount flows through the Sobat and the White Nile into the Nile. The Nile — the world’s longest river — runs through 11 countries in Africa and has a basin that covers about 3 million sq kms, nearly 10 per cent of the continent’s landmass.

About million people are reliant on the Nile’s waters in Ethiopia, Uganda, South Sudan, Sudan and Egypt. Nearly all of the rainfall that feeds the Nile’s two major tributaries — the Blue and White Nile. O, Nile, verdant art thou, who makes man and cattle to live.

The Blue Nile, however, is the source of most of the water, containing 80% of the water and White Nile is longer and rises in the Great Lakes region of central Africa, with the most distant source still undetermined but.

The river basin of this great waterway encompasses an area of more than 1 million square miles, which is approximately one tenth of the African continent. A river basin is the area that is drained by a river and the smaller streams that flow into that river. The Nile River basin.

The Aswan Dam (completed and raised twice since then) was the first dam built on the Nile to store part of the autumn flood for later use; it has a storage capacity of 5 billion cu m and is now supplemented by the Aswan High Dam (completed ), 5 mi (8 km) upstream, with a storage capacity of 48 billion cu m, sufficient (with existing.
