The conditions and implications of river basin development projects in the Nile Basin and around the world are rapidly changing.
As the Nile basin is increasingly ‘overbuilt’, policy makers, water users and scholars are forced to make difficult decisions which imply redistributions of land and water. This platform invites you to explore multiple water development projects along the Nile to provoke new debate about their conditions and possibilities.
Interested in deepening the discussion about new Nile projects, the Nile Water Lab foregrounds multiple material and discursive practices through which different actor reshape the Nile. It experiments with concepts from the social sciences, natural sciences and science and technology studies to grapple with the simultaneous transformation of the Nile water distribution, differences between its users and categories through which these are known.
