Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia experts meet in Addis Ababa to discuss report on GERD impact studies

(May 17, (Cairo))-- Experts from Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia are holding talks in Addis Ababa with representatives from foreign consultancy firms to discuss an initial report by the firms on the effect of the Ethiopian Grand Renaissance Dam (GERD) on downstream countries, Egypt's irrigation ministry said.

Ministry spokesman Walid Haqiqi told Al-Ahram Arabic news website that Sunday's meeting comes as a continuation of a four-day April meeting held in Cairo.
In April, the committee discussed an initial report prepared by the two French consultancy firms Atrelia and BRL on the effect of the dam on downstream countries, where they agreed on several technical points to be taken into consideration by the firms when formulating a final report.

The initial discussions conducted by the three countries were held to decide on a mechanism to be adopted by the firms in carrying out their studies. Read more from Ahram Online »
