Dividing the Nile

This chapter recounts Egyptian involvement in early Sudanese economic development, concentrating on Nile River utilization and the provision of financial assistance. The Egyptian government participated in numerous technical commissions investigating potential hydraulic works along the Nile. It also provided both budgetary assistance for the development of Sudanese infrastructure and a subvention for military forces after the 1924 Allenby ultimatum. Eventually the potentially contentious issues of both Nile water sharing and the determination and repayment of debts would be successfully negotiated. However, this chapter argues that success in these endeavors was actually detrimental to the nationalists’ goal because the arrangements that were reached inherently treated Egypt and the Sudan as independent entities.
