Egypt Water Report Q4 2014
The most important development over the past quarter has concerned the ongoing disagreement between Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt concerning the proposed renaissance dam. Should this dam go ahead, then it will significantly reduce the volume of water flowing down the Nile. This will have a particularly deleterious effect on the agriculture sector, which relies heavily on the annual flooding of the land along the Nile in order to fertilise the soil there. However, the Irrigation ministers of Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia have agreed to undertake two studies on the project's social, economic and environmental consequences, in conjunction with a study into the potential impact on the Nile's water flows. BMI believes this move is a sign that Egypt is beginning to adopt a reluctant partnership with Ethiopia, and overall we feel this joint study is a positive step towards a final mutual agreement concerning the project.
We feel the growing inclusion of Egypt in the dam's development will enable the country to potentially ring fence its own supplies and better protect the agriculture sector. The Egyptian water minister, Hussam Maghazi, said the country is 'conducting lateral contacts and making efforts [to ensure] that Egypt's water share will not be impacted [by the dam]'.
The government is still some way from introducing...

Egypt will predominantly follow the path taken by many MENA countries in looking to desalination for aid in alleviating potential water shortages likely to stem from the Ethiopian Renaissance Dam project . H owever , as the desalination facilities are extremely costly, the country is likely to look for outside funding to assist in the development of its desalination sector. The government also aims to improv e the efficiency of its water infrastructure (reducing losses and improving network coverage) as well as improving overall water conservation . H owever , we feel this process will take some time owing to the dearth of investment.
