Governing the Nile Under Climatic Uncertainty: The Need for a Climate-Proof Basin-Wide Treaty
This article examines treaty flexibility and climate change adaptation in the context of the Nile Basin. The Nile Basin is the focus of a voluminous body of academic literature, but there are gaps in the literature regarding the legal regimes of the Nile. Political scientists have extensively studied the role of power dynamics and hydro-hegemony in their effort to determine “who gets how much [of the Nile] water, when, where and why?” Peace and Security scholars have also addressed the issue of whether the Nile River will be a source of conflict or a catalyst for cooperation. Legal scholars, on the other hand, have explored some of the substantive issues concerning the fragmented legal regimes governing the Nile watercourse. Still absent, however, is both a detailed analysis of treaty flexibility in the Nile Basin and a proposal for building a basin-wide, climate-proof treaty
