The 1929 Nile Waters Agreement was signed between Egypt and Britain on behalf of Sudan and the East African countries who share the waters of Lake Victoria with the aim of increasing the volume of water flowing into Egypt. But analysts say this agreement was drawn in favor of Egypt and therefore neglecting the interests of other countries. According to experts, the agreement has a clause that forbids any irrigation or power projects along the Nile without Egypt\'s consent since this could threaten the volume of water reaching Egypt.
