Egypt is an arid country relying on the Nile River which provides 95% of its water resources and is suffering water stress due to limited supplies and growing populations, and increased competition on water from the upper Nile basin countries. There is significant pressure on water resources in Egypt to support the basic needs of the population, industry and agriculture production. This document provides a list of major policies that should be considered in addressing these problems.
