Abstract

This article quantifies the major benefits of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam Project for Sudan and Egypt based on GERDP technical design and quantitative analysis. Before discussing the benefits, the article will brief the general technical overview of the GERDP. Then, it shows how the GERDP will benefit East Africa by filling the wide gab in electricity power shortage based on the World Bank data. It has answered as how much sedimentation will GERDP remove from Blue Nile River per annum? How much do it cost for Sudan and Egypt to remove this sedimentation from their dam? How the Blue Nile flow looks like after GERDP is working with full capacity? How do Sudan and Egypt will be benefited by having regular water flow throughout the year due to GERDP? How do GERDP will play vital role in conservation of water in Ethiopian highlands? Finally a summary note and a recommendation will be given to indicate the way forward in handling the GERDP for the benefit of the region specifically Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt.
