The Nile basin and the southern Sudan referendum

The Water Governance Facility published a new Regional Water Intelligence Report, providing updates on the political economy of transboundary water resource issues, management and developments in the Nile basin, assessing different scenarios in relation to the South Sudan independence referendum. The report looks at the socio-economic aspects of water-management and highlight the links between water, energy, food and human security from a regional perspective. This report provides an analysis of the political landscape at the national and regional level in the Nile Basin including a political and legal analysis of the upcoming Southern Sudan referendum 2011. The objective is to prepare a base line to analyse key political events and their potential impact on Nile cooperation, within the framework of the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI). Some recommendations are explored that the international community could consider taking in the post referendum process to strengthen development and cooperation. The analysis of political events provides input to further analysis on the political economy of water in the Nile basin. The report does not provide a detailed overview of the NBI process to date which is provided elsewhere. [Authors abstract]

Abstract

The Water Governance Facility published a new Regional Water Intelligence Report, providing updates on the political economy of transboundary water resource issues, management and developments in the Nile basin, assessing different scenarios in relation to the South Sudan independence referendum. The report looks at the socio-economic aspects of water-management and highlight the links between water, energy, food and human security from a regional perspective. This report provides an analysis of the political landscape at the national and regional level in the Nile Basin including a political and legal analysis of the upcoming Southern Sudan referendum 2011. The objective is to prepare a base line to analyse key political events and their potential impact on Nile cooperation, within the framework of the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI). Some recommendations are explored that the international community could consider taking in the post referendum process to strengthen development and cooperation. The analysis of political events provides input to further analysis on the political economy of water in the Nile basin. The report does not provide a detailed overview of the NBI process to date which is provided elsewhere. [Authors abstract]
