The Economic Significance of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) to the Eastern Nile Economies: A CGE Modeling Approach
The government of Ethiopia is currently involved in intensive negotiations with downstream countries on the ways of filling and operating the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD). There are different political and economic views about the likely impacts of the dam on downstream countries, particularly on Egypt and Sudan. To generate evidence based research, EEA has undertaken this study using the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP). The study aims to provide information on the trans boundary economic significance of the GERD for the Eastern Nile economies.
