Is Regional Integration in the Nile Basin possible? The water-energy-food nexus in practice by Dr. Harry Verhoeven

Professor Harry Verhoeven, Associate Professor, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University Qatar, visited FAFS (September 27) and delivered a lecture on "Is Regional Integration in the Nile Basin possible? The water-energy-food nexus in practice"ā€‹.

Professor Verhoeven discussed the hydropolitics of the Nile Basin (Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia) and how the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam alters the regionā€™s political economy. Drawing on his research in all Nile Basin riparian countries, Dr. Verhoeven offered a thought provoking lecture about the benefits of collaboration through application of the Water-Energy-Food (WEF) Nexus in policy making and the potential pitfalls of an overly simplistic understanding of regional integration that may fail to do so.ā€‹
