Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam

Egypt vs Ethiopia: New escalation over Nile dam

Egyptian sources are warning of the consequences of not reaching an agreement on the dispute over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) that Ethiopia is building on the Blue Nile. The project has led to heated discussions with downstream countries Egypt and Sudan.

According to Egyptian Minister of Irrigation Mohamed Abdel Aty, any shortage of water will affect workers in the agricultural sector, causing security and social instability in the region.

Abdel Aty accused Ethiopia of deliberately issuing false statements about the GERD in addition to managing it individually in isolation from the downstream countries, which caused billions of dollars in material damage, in an attempt to mitigate the negative effects resulting from these unilateral measures that have disrupted the Nile River system.
