In much ofAfrica, access to water is a more pressing constraint on livelihoods, and a contributor to high levels of poverty. In the Nile Basin, there is the appar­ ently contradictory situation that access to water is often poor in the highland areas where water is abundant; but in arid Egypt, access has been significantly enhanced due to.

Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt agreed on the GERD. In addition, the ‘ownership’ of the Nile water resources according to “Nile Water Agreement ” belong to Egypt and Sudan. At the moment, the new water treaty that enables all of the eleven riparian countries to use the Nile has not been signed by File Size: 5MB. The Nile should have dried up entirely at this time, but it received additional water as a result of tectonic changes in the headwater region associated with formation of the East African Rift Valley. The term headwater simply refers to the area of highest elevation where a river begins. To summarize briefly, gradual lifting and tilting of the earth's crust along a zone that extends over

lation–water relationship, there remains ample opportunity to advance planning and diplomacy to overcome the conflict potential. The Nile River Basin The km long Nile is the world’s longest river, and flows from south to north with a catchment basin covering ap-proximately 10% of the African continent (Exhibit 1). The.   After much toil and hardship, 19th century explorers solved the mystery of where the Nile begins. But who has rights to the water remains a hot debate among countries in the mighty river's basin.

In order to achieve this aim, the hydrogeological and hydrogeochemical studies are carried out, based on the results of 21 pumping tests and chemical analysis of 29 water samples. Two water-bearing units are detected in the study area.

waters are generally less enriched in D and 18O than modern Nile River water. The ground water samples plot mostly in a position intermediate between the Sidi Barrani on one hand and our Nile River water sample and some of the post-High Dam Nile River samples (El Bakri et al., ).

It is characterized by a vegetation-free expanse of sandstone in the south and a limestone plateau in the north, with numerous sand sheets and sand dunes in numerous patterns.The climate of the Sahara has undergone noticeable variations between wet and dry over the last few tens of thousands of years.
