Blue Peace for the Nile, 2013

The Blue Peace for the Nile report advocates collaborative, comprehensive and sustainable solutions to transboundary water issues. It promotes engagement of mainstream decision makers and national leaders to address the water issue, going beyond conventional approaches. 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. The report is a result of a comprehensive international effort, primarily with input from nine of the Nile Basin countries (Burundi, Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Egypt). It examines trends and discontinuities for the next 40-50 years, and gives an insight into the future that will help us to prepare policy options.
