Egyptians' Daily Security and Ethiopia's Dam: Is Desalination a Way Out of the Water War?
Description or Abstract
Egypt — like many countries in the Middle East — has gone beyond water-poverty to what the United Nations calls the level of «water stress.» Across history, droughts have been associated with population displacement, disappearance of cities and even decline of civilizations. Since Egypt is not a rainy country and Egyptians count for 94% of their daily lives on Nile waters, serious security risks are becoming increasingly imminent after building the Renaissance Dam? Is there a way out of an impending national catastrophe? What do research findings tell us?
