Abstract:How do hydraulics and policy intersect and with what results for the use of the resource? Herein lies the major question of this study. How can 'sovereign' states, pursuing national self-interest and those policies that seemingly ensure a regime's survival, cope with the challenge of bi- or multinational coordination in the use of a common resource? The elements entering this question in the Nile valley are so structured as to thwart steps toward optimal usage. Why this is so and what its implications are for the near future are the principal themes of this book.
