I never heard about ENWPM( Sorry for my Ignorance). We heard about the Nile Water Initiative, which is not able to address the needs and interest of the Nile Water Source Countries as it has been expected.

What we know is Ethiopia's effort to exercise her water use right by her own resources. Ethiopia not only rejected the so called historic rights of Egypt and Sudan on Nile Water but also started developing and using part of Blue Nile Water for electric power generation and irrigation.

The recent agreement signed (The March Agreement in Khartoum) in among the three countries( Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt) can be considered as a good start. However, it can only be a complete success when Egypt and Sudan officially accept the illegality of the 1929 and 1959 Nile Water agreements. More specifically, Egypt and Sudan should officially endorse Ethiopia's right to use Blue Nile water for irrigation, power generation, human consumption, livestock consumption. In this sense, Ethiopian's will also be fully committed to not significantly harming lower Nile Watershed countries.
