This paper aims to explain the geopolitical set-up of the Nile Basin, the processes of the upstream-downstream negotiations, and the imperatives for upstream-downstream cooperation. It argues that the Nile basin countries must have a new agreement that paves the way for fresh and vibrant cooperation in the economic, environmental, security and legal / institutional spheres. These further enhance deeper cooperation in the cultural, scientific and technical fields among the riparian countries. In the final analysis, the paper concludes that a mutually acceptable cooperative engagement among the riparian nations in the Nile basin is for enhancing sustainable development in each country, as well as for achieving much-desired peace and security among the riparian nations.
