Why Egypt Should Join the Consensus On Shared Use of Nile Waters

To Egypt, in particular, the Nile is its life blood. Without it, Egypt would be a barren and desolate desert. It is not surprising that it has "threatened to go to war" if its entitlement to 85 per cent of the Nile waters, as per 1929 and 1952 colonial agreements with Britain, was tampered with or varied in any way, writes William G. Naggaga for Daily Monitor.

River Nile is shared by 10 countries and because of this shared basin, an initiative was set up to monitor activities along the river.
