Nile river monitoring project from Curtin Uni could help 200 million Africans manage water better.

A research project led by Curtin University Associate Professor Joseph Awange in the fluctuating volumes of water in the Nile River could help nearby nations better plan for the sustainable use of the water resource in the future.

The study looks into both man-made and natural causes for the variations in water volume, including rain, drought, environmental degradation, as well as human factors such as increased water use due to increased agriculture and population growth. These human factors are mostly tied to a particular country’s economic growth, which means that a plan for the sustainable use of all available water is needed to help countries to successfully manage their own particular water needs.
