The Nile River Basin supports the livelihoods of millions of people in Egypt, Ethiopia, Sudan and Uganda, principally as water for agriculture and hydropower. The resource is the focus of much contested development, not only between upstream and downstream neighbours, but also from countries outside the region. This book investigates the water, land and energy nexus in the Nile Basin. It explains how the current surge in land and energy investments, both by foreign actors as well as domestic investors, affects already strained transboundary relations in the region and how investments are intertwined within wider contexts of Nile Basin history, politics and economy. Overall, the book presents a range of perspectives, drawing on political science, international relations theory, sociology, history and political ecology.

'[T]his book is an important contribution to the literature because it provides new critical insights on the effects of land investments, a topic missing from the literature, showing their impacts on the hydropolitical relations in the basin...the chapters...eloquently unfold to show the linkages between the Nile Basin, the Middle East and the major investors, and how important these linkages are in terms of virtual water trade.' - Hussam Hussein, International Journal of Water Resources Development, 2017
