Savind the Nile (AJEnglish)

Could mega-dams kill the mighty River Nile?

For the 280 million people from 11 countries who live along the banks of the Nile, it symbolises life. For Ethiopia, a new dam holds the promise of much-needed electricity; for Egypt, the fear of a devastating water crisis.

Large hydroelectric dams are touted as a green source of electricity, but they can leave a trail of environmental damage and water insecurity.

In this interactive scientific report, Al Jazeera partnered with earth and space scientist Dr Essam Heggy to analyse the impact of large dams on the Nile as the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) nears its completion date in 2023.

The mega-dam has triggered a major dispute between Egypt and Ethiopia over access to the Nile’s vital water resources. How much will each country get and who controls the flow?

Is the West loosing influence? (AJEnglish)

US President Donald Trump‘s «America First» policy is causing concern among European leaders who differ from Washington on key issues including relations with Iran and China

The divisions were clear at the annual Munich Security Conference where splits arose between leaders as they discussed whether the West was losing influence to other global powers.

According to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the «West is winning» and the transatlantic alliance is not dead. 

But German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier warned that the US was putting its interests first at the expense of its allies.

Is US foreign policy undermining traditional alliances?
