A Catalyst for Cooperation on the Nile

Abstract

GERD can provide a catalyst for further cooperation on water among the Nile
Basin states.
• Potential benefits extend beyond energy and could trigger regional integration
and foster sustainable economic development across the basin.
• At the same time, the GERD is a large-scale project and mitigating its associated
potential negative impacts will require close collaboration.
• If riparian countries, particularly in the Eastern Nile Basin, can continue to work
jointly to establish a suitable legal and institutional framework, there can be a
significant payoff in the transparent, sustainable and equitable implementation
of water-related infrastructure and development plans.
