South Sudan’s parliament ratifies Nile Basin initiative agreement

South Sudan’s parliament ratifies Nile Basin initiative agreement

South Sudan’s parliament has ratified the Cooperative Framework Agreement (#CFA) of the Nile Basin Initiative, following months of deliberation.

The CFA, which involves 11 countries along the Nile, aims to promote equitable use of the river’s resources. Key provisions include establishing a Nile River Basin Commission, facilitating data sharing, and requiring environmental impact assessments for major projects.

Parliamentary spokesperson Oliver Mori indicated that ratification could enable South Sudan to pursue development projects utilizing the Nile, potentially including hydroelectric power generation.

The agreement has faced opposition from #Egypt and #Sudan. South Sudan’s decision to ratify comes after a period of study to assess the treaty’s implications and benefits.
