Activists protest perceived infringement on Egypt's traditional share of Nile water

(Ahram) May, 2013 - Ethiopia's 'Renaissance Dam' project- one of four planned hydro-electric power projects - has been a source of concern for the Egyptian government, amid ongoing sensitivities regarding the project's possible effects on Egypt's traditional share of Nile water.

According to the state-run National Planning Institute, Egypt will need an additional 21 billion cubic metres of water per year by 2050 - on top of its current quota of 55 billion metres - to meet the needs of a projected population of some 150 million.

Will Ethiopia's 'grand' new dam steal Nile waters from Egypt?
