Examining the negotiations over water rights between the countries of the Nile Basin, Tesfaye (political science, William Paterson U. of New Jersey)
Examining the negotiations over water rights between the countries of the Nile Basin, Tesfaye (political science, William Paterson U. of New Jersey) argues that the need for water resource development by the upstream countries has reached a critical point and that Egypt can no longer maintain its basically unilateral control of Nile water resources. Furthermore, past agreements have failed because of weak international law, but recent developments concerning recognition of the value of ecological integrity, sustainable development, and the rights of individuals and communities have led to new norms that provide a framework for reaching agreement between Egypt and the upstream countries. Finally, he argues that the World Bank and other international financial institutions have instituted policy changes that encourage more cooperation among the Nile riparian states in terms of water resource development.
