Water Security and the Horn of Africa

Foreign Affairs published on 9 August 2018 an article titled "Water Wars on the Nile" by Daniel Benaim and Michael Wahid Hanna.

The article looks at the increasingly complicated water issues in the Horn of Africa concerning construction of Africa's largest dam on the Blue Nile in Ethiopia and food security needs of both the Horn of Africa countries and the Gulf States. On top of this are security interests of Turkey, Egypt, and the Gulf States. The authors argue the US should be giving more high level attention to this potentially explosive mix.
