Blue Peace for the Nile

This report calls for collaborative, comprehensive and sustainable solutions to trans-boundary water issues in the Nile region. It promotes engagement of mainstream decision makers and national leaders to address the water issue, going beyond the conventional approach over dependence on the domain ministries. It also explores how water can be used as an instrument for peace. The countries of the Nile Basin have made commendable progress in regional cooperation under the auspices of the Nile Basin Initiative, but they have also encountered difficulties and differences of opinion on some of the key legal and political issues.
