      The basin water board’s lack of readiness and capacity is a concern given the area’s population, economic activity, and strategic importance to the country. The Pangani basin ranks second for economic potential in the Business as Usual scenario and first forFile Size: KB. The purpose of this chapter is to outline some of the key issues in relation to water resources in Uganda based on recent studies and to describe some of the water resources issues and challenges in a particular study area within Lwengo District, which has been described in Chapter 1 (Fagan et al., ).Uganda has abundant surface water resources including lakes, rivers, streams, and wetlands.

      Despite making significant gains and holding incredible promise, the cooperative process in the Nile Basin still faces a host of serious challenges it must overcome before the NBI attains its goal of achieving sustainable socioeconomic development through the equitable utilization of, and benefit from, the common Nile Basin Water Resources (NBI. of the Tanganyika Basin exist*'one may assume that the primary geographical facts are at the command of thc reader of the present notes which will, therefore, be restricted to the purely hydrological aspect. n.-SUBDIVISIONS OF THE BASIN.

      Lake Tanganyika is located in Africa’s Western Great Rift Valley. The lake is divided between the four Contracting States, with the DRC and Tanzania possessing the majority of the lake’s area. Lake Tanganyika is the world’s longest lake, the second largest freshwater lake by volume (18, km3), and the second deepest (1, m). Nile-SEC actively provides the first and only all- inclusive regional platform that brings together Nile Basin States for open discussion and understanding of the interests, positions and expectations of the Basin States in what concerns the management and utilization .

LoCATIoN oF THE E BASIN IN NFRICAIL A Nile Basin Water Resources Atlas / 5 John Rao Nyaoro, HSC (PhD) Executive Director Nile Basin Initiative STATEMENT BY EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, NILE BASIN INITIATIVE Dear Esteemed Reader, I am most delighted to welcome you to the first Nile Basin Water Resources Atlas.

Water resources developmentFile Size: KB. The Nile Basin Water Resources Atlas is one such knowledge tool developed by NBI. The Atlas makes the data and information accessible in a format that is easy, succinct and visually attractive.

The Nile basin exhibits large variations in climate ranging from the tropical climate at the sources of the Blue and White Nile to the Mediterranean climate at the mouth of the Nile.

This variation reflects the latitude range; 4 o S to 32 o N and the altitude range; from sea level to more than 3, m. non-consumptive demands for water across the basin. It ends with a discussion on how benefits to the Nile riparians could be optimized through cooperative management and development of the common Nile water resources on a win–win basis.

The Nile, 6, kilometres in total length, is, by most accounts, the longest river in the world. THE NILE BASIN basin boundary The NBI is not an authority on international boundaries.

N WATER RESOURCES 27 THE NILE BASIN The term ‘basin’ refers to the geographical area drained by a river or lake. The Nile Basin, in the context of this report, File Size: 7MB.

The Nile Basin, characterized by sharp spatial and temporal variations in water resources and including countries with different economies, social and political structures and capacities, illustrates the challenges of developing and managing the waters of the Nile River and its tributaries, lakes and wetlands equitably among its 10 riparian Author: Helmut Kloos.

Kenya is a peripheral source of Nile water and has unused available inland resources, and thus logically it cannot make demands on Nile water. Water. • The Nile countries have a combined population of million, 54 per cent of which ( million) resides in the Nile Basin.

• Water availability appears to be the chief determinant of population distribution in the basin. In Egypt and Sudan, population is largely concentrated along the course of the River Nile,File Size: 2MB.

The Nile River Basin: Water, Agriculture, Governance and Livelihood is edited by Awulachew, Smakhtin, Molden and Peden. The pp, $ book has 15 chapters written by 50+ authors. The book is, in other words, a compilation of papers written for three overlapping projects for evaluating the current situation and potential future scenarios for 3/5(1).

The Nile basin water resources have been extensively studied during the last years for planning and management purposes, in particular with regard to the use of blue water in the downstream. Considering the basin area of the Nile, Sudan has the largest size ( million km²) whereas, of the four major tributaries to the Nile, three originate from Ethiopia – the Blue Nile, Sobat and.

This book presents results of scientific studies ranging from hydrological modelling to water management and policy issues in the Nile River basin. It examines the physical, hydrometeorological and hydrogeological description of the basin along with analysis in understanding the hydrological processes of the basin under the changing land-use.

About this book. Nile River Basin provides a comprehensive overview of the hydrology of the Nile River, especially the ecohydrological degradation and challenges the basin is facing, the impact of climate change on water availability and the transboundary water management River Basin includes analysis and approaches that will help provide different insights into the hydrology of.

The Nile Basin Initiative Secretariat has launched the Nile Basin Water Resources Atlas. The Atlas was launched by the 2nd Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for East African Affairs, the Rt. Hon. Kirunda Kivejinja during the 24th Annual Nile Council of Ministers held on 14th July, in Entebbe, Uganda.

In a regional context, the whole of Uganda’s water resources is part of the Nile. Uganda is a downstream riparian to Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda and.

The Nile Basin Initiative Strategic Action Program contains two main types of projects - Those to be planned and undertaken at Basin level with all the riparian countries involved called the "Shared Vision Program" (SVP), and those to be undertaken between two or more countries at subsidiary level, called "Subsidiary Action Programs" (SAP).

Water supply and sanitation in Tanzania is characterised by: decreasing access to at least basic water sources in the s (especially in urban areas), steady access to some form of sanitation (around 93% since the s), intermittent water supply and generally low quality of service.

Many utilities are barely able to cover their operation and maintenance costs through revenues due to low Continuity of supply: Mostly intermittent (17 out of. Project description. Title: Support of transboundary water cooperation in the Nile River Basin Commissioned by: German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) Countries: Uganda, headquarters of the Nile Basin Initiative; cooperation with other Nile Basin riparian states: Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, South.

Talk of diverting water from the Congo River to Egypt is pure fantasy, shifting attention from less costly and more effective strategies for conserving Nile Basin water resources. In addition, before reaching Egypt, the Nile passes through many countries that have their own needs for water.

For this reason, Egypt may suffer from a severe water shortage in the future. Egypt is trying to make effective use of the limited water resources available to continue providing its people with an enjoyable and prosperous life.Sub-Saharan Africa, the poorest region worldwide, has only recently begun to fully address the issues of meeting the water needs of its rapidly growing population, to reduce the deepening poverty besetting the region and to accelerate economic growth.
