Ethiopia, Egypt, and the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam

The Washington Institute for Near East Policy published on 28 August 2018 an article titled "Breaking the Stalemate in the Egypt-Ethiopia Dam Dispute" by Barak Barfi, research fellow at New America.

The author rightly notes that the critical issue is the water fill rate behind the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam on the Blue Nile River in Ethiopia because of the impact the decreased water flow will have on downstream Egypt. While Egypt and Ethiopia have a good relationship and are trying to find a solution amicably, he argues they have not made much headway.
