The Nile Water Issue as Seen from South Sudan

 The South Sudan News Agency published on 25 April 2021 an analysis titled "Analyzing the Struggle over the Nile River: The Need for a New Legal Flexible Agreement" by Peter Reat Gatkouth.

The author argues that the Nile River basin's existing legal framework is inadequate to meet the needs of the Nile Basin countries.  The focus of the article is on the upstream states and the need for a Nile treaty that provides a fair distribution of water rights.
