TITLE
Eastern Nile System Under Three Different Water Apportionment Alternatives: Colonial Era, the Washington DC and Equitable Share

ABSTRACT
The absence of a basin-wide binding apportionment agreement is a long-standing source of disagreement among riparian countries. The United Nations Water Convention (UNWC) is one legal instrument that could serve to estimate reasonable water apportionment to riparian countries. Seventy-five potential indicators that best describe the 7 factors of UNWC were defined based on multiple sources that can address conflicting interest of basin context. Based on these indicators and factors, two questionnaires were developed and distributed to 215 prominent experts from five professional groups living in five continents to identify important indicators and to estimate the weight.
