    This report describes the project of strengthening the ability of the governments of the Nile Basin states to take informed decisions with regard to water resources policy and management in the Nile Basin. This objective to be achieved through the development of information products that integrate technical water resources and water use data with other relevant data, including in particular demographic, socio-economic and environmental data.

    Water and Agriculture in the Nile Basin
    Nile Basin Initiative Report to ICCON. Background paper prepared by FAO

    This paper discusses – at the sub-basin level – the regional differences and comparative advantages for agricultural development and water resources utilization in the Nile Basin. It looks at options for development, projected in the regional context, and the importance of agricultural water use for social and food security in the different parts of the basin. Agricultural information derived from country data is aggregated into the sub-basins of the Nile, which are classified in this paper as t he Southern Nile (Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda), Eastern Nile (Eritrea and Ethiopia) and Lower Nile (Egypt and the Sudan). Figure 1 shows the administrative boundaries of the riparian countries, and also the hydrological sub-basins of the Nile River.

    Water accounting in the Nile River Basin
    WaPOR Water Accounting series

    This report describes the water accounting study for the Nile River Basin carried out by IHE-Delft using the Water Productivity (WaPOR) data portal of the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO). The Nile River Basin faces a huge challenge in terms of water security. With an expected doubling of the population in the basin in the next twenty-five years, water supply in the basin will be further depleted as demands for agriculture, domestic and industry continues to grow. Water availability in the basin will also be threatened by climate change and variability and pollution from increased agricultural and industrial activities and from urban areas. However with limited up-to-date ground observations, in terms of duration, completeness, and quality of the hydro-meteorological records it is difficult to draw an appropriate picture of the water resources conditions. The Water Accounting Plus (WA+) system designed by IHE Delft with its partners FAO and IWMI has been applied to gain full insights into the state of the water resources in the basin.
