#Egypt #travel What's behind the Egypt-Ethiopia Nile dispute? | Start Here

Ethiopia has been building a new hydroelectric dam that’s promising to revive its economy and bring electricity to millions of people in mostly rural areas.
But the Grand Renaissance Dam has its critics. Mainly Egypt, which says its water supply is in danger, and its people depend on that flow for consumption and farming.

So why exactly can’t the two sides come to an agreement?
