Author:El Radi Siddig, Dafalla

Geographic terms:Sudan

Abstract:The past treaties concerning the Nile invariably deal with the problem of quantitative allocation of water as the main theme of dispute around which all the other claims rotate. These past treaties will be broken down with reference to the different claims for the purpose of an analytical study in the article. Successively the article analyses: 1. The process of use; 2. The process of claims, which may be defined as the attempts of certain participants in the world arena to secure and protect various objectives with various instruments of policy; 3. The process of decision; 4. The clarification of policies; 5. The trends in past decisions and their conditioning factors; 6. Appraisal and recommendations. The author predicts that in future the inclusive use of the water will be for the purpose of the co-reparians; the resources of the river other than water are left to the exclusive use of riparians.
