With this issue of Nile Flow we bring you forth the latest developments in ENTRO. We are glad to welcome our 13th batch of young professionals who are interning here at ENTRO. Their participation will help ENTRO a long way to fill gaps we had in certain expertise. The interns will be working on priority ENTRO issues during their stay. It is also during this quarter that our Seasonal Flood Monitoring, the 9th in a series has begun. Four interns are taking part in this effort We also have advanced our project work in: performance assessment of Eastern Nile Irrigation system; coordinated operation of cascade dams in the Eastern Nile. We had a successful capacity building workshop of Basin wide Media professionals – this time focusing on the water and food security issues as well as the linkages between food security and water. We hope this menace will get the media attention it deserves in Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia and South Sudan. Thanks to the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Government of German, we had also undertaken national training of negotiators in the three countries which focused on enabling participants to generate win-win outcomes in negotiations. We hope you enjoy reading this issue. As often, we value your feedback.

ENTRO produces Nile Flow every quarter, available both in print and electronic formats. Nile Flow features institutional information about Nile water cooperation undertaken by ENTRO, EN countries and partners. The Editorial Committee encourages contributions from readers. ‘‘Did you know?’’ and ‘‘Concepts that Matter sections’’ are intended to provide a platform for such contributions and exchanges. What is in a name? We have chosen ‘‘Nile-Flow’’ as the name of our Newsletter. Nile – Our great river! Flow –The flow of our great river, running through the three sisterly Eastern Nile Subsidiary Action Program (ENSAP) Countries of Egypt, Ethiopia, Republic of South Sudan, and the Sudan; connecting the people, their cultures, their histories and shared destinies since time immemorial. Flow- In the psychological sense also symbolizes a feeling of energized focus, of total engagement, and success in the activity being undertaken-i.e in the ENSAP cooperation process we are all engaged in. Thus, the twin message; description of reality, on the one hand, and a statement of hope vision and purpose on the other. The Editorial Committee encourages editorial contributions from readers.

This has been the theme for the 2012 Nile-Day Celebrations, "Water Energy, Food: Importance of Nile" which marked the establishment of the Nile Basin Initiative on February 22, 1999. This year’s Regional Celebration, in which all member countries took part collectively, was hosted by Uganda and took place in Jinja town, at the mouth of the White Nile. The day was also commemorated by all member countries. As we celebrate this important day, we realize the relevance and the significance of the theme of the celebration.

It is now becoming almost a cliché that without all- inclusive cooperation, the Nile Basin – along with its inhabitants – will be exposed to a multitude of risks. With foot dragging and little or no timely action, the risks will build up and reinforce each other. In the long run untangling the consequences of these risks will require Herculean task on the part of future genera- tions who have had nothing to do with the making of the mess in the first place. Such a legacy looks grim, but not necessarily an implausible one!

The Nile, with a total length of 6,695 km, is the world’s longest river. It is shared by 11 African countries. The Nile is an asset of extraordinary regional and global importance. The Eastern Nile Basin (ENB), consisting of Egypt, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Sudan supplies up to 90% of the annual Nile flows; however, its contribution is highly seasonal.
ENB covers some 1.7 million km2 and comprises of four sub-basins: the Baro-Akobo-Sobat-White Nile, the Abbay-Blue Nile, the Tekeze-Atbara and the Main Nile from Khartoum to the Nile delta. The ENB hosts over a quarter of a billion inhabitants.

ENTRO has been forced to stay in a sort of limbo for nearly four years, since June 2010, when six upstream riparians concluded the negotiations and signed the Nile Basin Cooperative Framework Agreement (CFA) and consequently, objecting to this, Egypt and Sudan froze participation in NBI, including in ENSAP/ENTRO. In actual fact, the freezing, was in a way partial, for ENTRO never stopped functioning and there were always ways to engage the countries, albeit less formally, for example thru the Internship program in which sixteen universities from the four Eastern Nile countries collaborated with ENTRO.

We believe now is the right time to ask this question. They Year 2012 will mark ENTRO’s 10th year of establishment. For us here at ENTRO it is time to take stock of and celebrate our achievements; to reflect on the hurdles we had overcome and also on the likely challenges we could face in the coming years.

This issue of Nile-Flow, as often, will update our readers with the latest developments in ENSAP and ENTRO. Since our last issue, ENTRO has signed MOUs with a number of institutions – with IFPRI (International Food Policy Research Institute), UNESCO-IHC based in Delft, the Netherlands; University of Bonn and the Nile Basin Dialogue. The first three will strengthen ENTRO in terms of linking with, taking part in and benefiting from ongoing academic and applied research. The latter will allow ENTRO benefit from the extensive grassroots networks NBD is maintaining across the basin.

The Eastern Nile Council of Ministers (ENCOM), the highest governing body of the Eastern Nile Subsidiary Action Program (ENSAP) of the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) has concluded its Meeting today, January 30, 2014 in Debrezeit, Ethiopia. The ENCOM Meeting was preceded by a two-day 27th Meeting of the ENSAPT (Eastern Nile Subsidiary Action Program Team), a technical advisory body to ENCOM. The ENSAPT comprises three senior technical experts and officials from each of the member countries. The ENCOM Meeting was attended by Ethiopia, Sudan and the Republic of South Sudan. Egypt declined to participate continuing on its decision to freeze participation in NBI activities following the signing of the CFA by six upstream member countries of the NBI.

Promoting rapid socio-economic development (i.e. poverty reduction, livelihood improvement) in a socially (the area is a post-conflict zone) and environmentally (the area is one of the few remaining wetland habitats and wild life refuges) sen-sitive way poses formidable challenge. Using these challenges as entry points for regional cooperation among the three countries makes the task even more challenging – and at the same time more attractive, for the rewards, like the chal-lenges, will be multi-dimensional, addressing multiple constraints at the same time, if done well.

The Eastern Nile Basin (ENB), consisting of Egypt, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Sudan hosts over a quarter of billion inhabitants. The ENB comprises almost half of the 3.4 million km2 catchment area of the Nile River Basin and contributing much more than half of the runoff to the Main Nile. The ENB is home to globally significant terrestrial and aquatic habitats, and ecosystems, some are classified as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The diversity of ecosystems within the ENB from tropical forests, high mountains, woodlands, savannahs, arid lands and deserts, has turned the ENBinto a region of extraordinary biodiversity. The ENB hosts some of the last remaining large mammals of the world such as Elephants, Buffalos, Giraffes, African lions, Cheetahs, White eared kobo, Gazelles, including their majestic

As the world’s longest river, the Nile is a source of livelihood for over 230 million people who live within its basin that covers 3.2 million square kilometers (about 10 per cent of Africa’s land area). Yet, for all its economic potential and natural endowments, the Nile Basin is threatened by scarcity of water and degradation of its ecosystems. It is estimated that from the Ethiopian catchments alone where 86 per cent of the river flow originates, up to 200 million tons of top soil are washed away every year. Downstream in the delta area, salt water infiltration into the Nile is an acute problem.

 For centuries, the people living along the 6,671-kilometre River Nile depended on it almost entirely for water, irrigation, and food. Millions still depend on it today. But as populations have grown and lifestyles changed, the great river and its basin have come under serious strain. The river banks have been heavily settled, forests cut for fuel and pollution has been exacerbated from industrial release and fertiliser use. Silt now clogs river tributaries contracting the flow, displacing natural reservoirs of water in lakes along the way, and increasing the likelihood of flooding. Fish populations and those of other water animals have dwindled as a result of declining habitats and over-harvesting. Consequently, the livelihoods of about 160 million people stand threatened. All this has driven home the point that the 10 countries within the Nile Basin are permanently connected and must cooperate to save the River Nile if they are to survive and develop both as nations and collectively, as a region.

ENTRO has been preparing investment projects as well as carrying out specialized studies throughout its history. As part of this a lot of knowledge is produced in form of reports, time-series datasets, spatial datasets, models etc As the knowledge produced expands the need for a structured knowledge base became eminent. Addressing the complex issues in the Eastern Nile also requires interaction among the different projects and building up on the results of previous recommendations. As a result ENTRO initiated project-based knowledge management activities.

Whereas the Nile Basin states have limited access to modern energy, research conducted under the 2011 Comprehensive Basin-Wide Study of Power Development Options and Trade Opportunities led by the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) identified more than 145,000MW of hydropower potential across the Basin. However, less than three per cent of it in upstream countries had been developed.

Nile Day is a commemoration of the establishment of the unprecedented Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) on February 22, 1999 by Ministers in charge of Water Affairs in the Nile Basin countries. The day marked a major milestone in the history of Nile Cooperation. It was the very first time that the countries jointly agreed to establish an allinclusive basin-wide institution, to provide a platform for consultation and coordination among themselves.

More than 50 small and large dams are being operated in Eastern Nile countries. These include dams with large water storage reservoirs such as High Aswan Dam, Merowe Dam and Tekeze Dams on Main Nile, Blue Nile and Tekeze Rivers respectively.  The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) in Ethiopia and Angreb dam in Sudan are being constructed, while there are other development plans to be implemented within the basin. The number of dams, their location, complexity and size requires serious coordination to ensure their safe operation. Though ENTRO has undertaken preliminary effort in this direction (e.g. dam safety assessment, training programs, and dam safety guideline) there is still serious gap to be addressed.
