Résumé
The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) is being built on the Blue Nile with a capacity of 74 billion cubic meters and a height of 145 meters. A dam of this size would affect the water shares of Egypt and Sudan (55.5 and 18.5 BCM, respectively. This study assesses the short-term (30-year period) impact of construction of (GERD) on Egypt’s water resources and hydropower generation. A simulation model for the system was built using Matlab software. Filling and operation scenarios of GERD are simulated to evaluate outflow from GERD and inflow changes to HAD. The calibrated HAD model is used to calculate different impact indicators (water deficit, hydropower energy reduction, HAD water level decrease .etc.). The results indicate that It is expected to take HAD about 30 years to recover, GERD will increase the risk of water and hydropower shortages, Increasing filling time does not significantly improve the adverse impacts, Conservation projects may be helpful in reducing the negative impacts and Climate Change worsens the adverse impacts of GERD.
