Ethiopia dam plan would ‘threaten Egypt’s national security’


Mohammad Abdel Aty, the former head of Egypt’s Nile Water Authority, has voiced his concerns about Egypt’s water security as Ethiopia continues construction of the Grand Renaissance Dam.

Abdel Aty believes that Egypt’s heavy reliance on Nile waters increases the threat posed by the Grand Renaissance Dam due to a lack of alternative water sources.

Egypt’s annual rainfall of 1.8 billion metres is not sufficient to meet the country’s needs, and desalination plants only contribute one percent of the country’s requirements, says Abdel Aty.
