Why Nile For Peace Initiative

Concerned over the ongoing dispute concerning the construction of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam and other projects along the Nile River we collectively aim to prevent disagreements in the Nile Basin region and the wider Continent by encouraging fair use of the waters for the benefit and comprehensive and sustainable development for all citizens;

We appreciate that there is a significant importance of protecting and assisting all African countries to resolve and avoid conflicts over the Nile and other water-related resources. Water is life and the centrality and invaluable purpose of water to all forms of life can be an engine of growth and sustainable development

We recognize the centrality and invaluable purpose of water to life, and how water can be an engine of growth and sustainable development; and aware that the peace and security of the region is at stake; and further cognizant of the fact that the Nile, like many other International Waters, can set a successful example for turning potential conflict into cooperation.
