Egypt, Ethiopia, Sudan and Nile Water

The Egyptian private daily newspaper, Youm 7, asked me to respond to a series of questions concerning Egypt's relations with Ethiopia and the impact of Ethiopia's new Renaissance Dam on Egypt.  I submitted my responses on 1 June 2013, before the Egyptian public relations debacle on this issue noted in a posting below dated 5 June 2013.  Youm 7 published the interview translated into Arabic on 6 June 2013.  You can also read the original English version titled "Egypt, Ethiopia, Sudan and Nile Water."


  1. Dear Professor,

    That was a great interview. One correction - you have indicated the water volume in "square meters", which is a unit for area.

    I think, you wanted to say "cubic meters".

    Have a great day.
