The Nile River and its basin extend over a distinctive geophysical cord connecting eleven sovereign states from Egypt to Tanzania, which are home to an estimated population of 422.2 million people. The Nile is an essential source of water for domestic, industrial and agricultural uses throughout the basin, yet for more than a century it has been at the centre of continuous and conflicting claims and counter-claims to rights of utilization of the resource. In this book the author examines the multifaceted legal regulation of the Nile. He re-constructs the legal and historical origin and functioning of the British Nile policies in Ethiopia by examining the composition of the Anglo-Ethiopian Treaty of 1902, and analyses its ramifications on contemporary riparian discourse involving Ethiopia and Sudan. The book also reflects on two fairly established legal idioms - the natural and historical rights expressions – which constitute central pillars of the claims of downstream rights in the Nile basin; the origin, essence and legal authority of the notions has been assessed on the basis of the normative dictates of contemporary international watercourses law. Likewise, the book examines the non-treaty based claims of rights of the basin states to the Nile waters, setting out what the equitable uses principle entails as a means of reconciling competing riparian interests, and most importantly, how its functioning affects contemporary legal settings. The author then presents the concentrated diplomatic movements of the basin states in negotiations on the Transitional Institutional Mechanism of the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) - pursued since the 1990’s, and explains why the substance of water use rights still continued to be perceived diversely among basin states. Finally, the specific legal impediments that held back progress in negotiations on the Nile Basin Cooperative Framework are presented in context.

This book covers the entire Nile Basin and reflects the latest findings. It provides unique and cutting-edge insights into the region’s agriculture, water resources, governance, poverty, productivity, upstream-downstream linkages, innovations, future plans and their implications. Many international summits and conferences have declared that there is an urgent need to save agriculture from its demise. Most international agencies now recognize that something must be done, but what? Beyond policy changes, the restructuring of global governance and institutional reforms are called for. Commitments must be translated into concrete actions leading to a renewed interest in agriculture and a return to the basic objective of achieving food security.

With empirical and ethnographic case studies from around the world the three volumes together represent one of the most complete and up to date accounts of the central role of water in the history and development of humanity.

Das Buch befasst sich mit den Vorgaben des internationalen Wasserrechts für Abkommen zwischen Anrainerstaaten über die Nutzung und Bewirtschaftung gemeinsamer Wasserläufe. Der aktuelle Stand des internationalen Wassergewohnheitsrechts wird dargelegt und der Regelungsgehalt der UN-Wasserlaufkonvention erläutert, Abkommen auf regionaler und wasserlaufspezifischer Ebene werden skizziert. Anschließend werden die bisherigen Nilverträge und das noch nicht in Kraft getretene Kooperationsrahmenabkommen für den Nil dargestellt, rechtlich gewürdigt und auf ihre Übereinstimmung mit dem internationalen Wasserrecht untersucht. Auch die eingehende Prüfung einer Vertragsnachfolge Südsudans ist Teil der Darstellung. Schließlich wird das völkerrechtliche Leitprinzip zur Nutzungsverteilung, der Grundsatz ausgewogener und angemessener Nutzung, auf den Nil angewandt und dazu konkretisiert. Die Arbeit zeigt auf, inwieweit dieser Grundsatz ein Konzept für eine Nutzungsverteilung in der Praxis zu liefern vermag.
