CAIRO - 23 January 2018: Water Resources and Irrigation Minister Mohamed Abdel Ati stressed that Egypt is suffering a lot from the impact of climate change, considering rising temperature as a major challenge threatening the Nile Delta region.
Addressing the inaugural session of the 3rd Mediterranean Water Forum on Tuesday, he said Egypt is a distinguished state in managing water resources although 90 percent of its water sources are located outside its borders.
He stressed the necessity of cooperation among countries sharing the same water sources, noting in this regard importance of the commitment of Nile Basin countries to their pledges not to harm the interests of the downstream countries of the River Nile.
He added that the forum offers a great chance for Mediterranean experts and researchers to exchange expertise.
