Abstract
The conflict in the great lakes of Africa has major impact on the hydropolitics of the Nile Basin. Political instability makes cooperation in water projects extremely difficult. Absence of cooperation would lead to the creation of contradicting national policies and eventually to more conflicts . Armed conflicts in the Great lakes led to foreign intervention . As a consequence, the area became captive to the plans of foreign powers, especially Israel and U.S.A. In addition , the spread of armed conflicts triggered massive internal migration and influx cirrefugees who polluted water sources, and wasted valuable resources. Maintaining and securing a steady and continuos flow of water to Arab countries from its African sources, requires cooperation between the states of the Nile basin. Prerequisite for this cooperation is political stability
