Water Politics in the Nile Basin- Emerging Land Acquisitions and the Hydropolitical Landscape

Duration : January 1, 2013 - December 31, 2016

Water Politics in the Nile Basin project develops and convenes dialogue over water and development in the Nile Basin using the combined strengths of SIWI and IWMI researchers. The project is convening a meeting in Addis Ababa on Land and Water Investments in the Nile Basin in May 2016 which aims to establish ways of developing more effective investment frameworks. The dialogues will convene national as well as regional policy makers and practitioners, linking research with policy environments in a critical portion of the Nile basin where resources are under pressure and development needs are growing.
