Abstract [en]

The emergence of China in the Nile basin happened simultaneously to the cooperative developments among the 10 riparian countries. This paper argues that the power structures shifted from international agencies, which advance basin-wide cooperation, to private (Chinese) enterprises that advance unilateral undertakings. The decline of influence from international agencies who generally act in accordance to the Western liberal-democratic morale and China’s increasing influence by unilateral development, challenges the cooperative (multilateral) regime. Generally, this shift in the balance of power in the Nile region is regarded with suspicion by the Western dominated view as they question the ‘responsible’ engagement of China and the risks that come with ‘no strings attached’ policy that come with unilateral development.
