The most fundamental purpose of this study is to review the relationship of the Nile legal regime and contemporary principles of international shared watercourses. The study provides an ideal analysis for the conflict of norms in the Nile legal regime and the outcome of such conflict. It helps determine whether the contemporary principles of international shared watercourses have in any way modified the Nile legal regime. The study also identifies how principles of international shared watercourses can be embraced and applied by the Nile riparian states in a cooperative manner. A comparative approach will be undertaken on the Nile legal regime and other regional shared watercourses legal regimes, notably, the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC), with the hope that light will be shed on how Nile basin states can equitably utilize the Nile resource in cooperation. In essence, it will be interesting to view how developments in international watercourse law can affect the development of a stable and comprehensive Nile legal regime.
