During the past four decades Egypt, Libya and Sudan have made separate attempts to develop the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System and the overlying arid lands. Since early seventies the three countries have expressed their interest in regional cooperation to share their experience and to study and develop this regional aquifer.
The three countries agreed to establish a Joint Authority to study and develop the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System and also agreed to seek international technical assistance to establish a regional project in order to develop a regional strategy for the utilization of the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System.
Therefore it has been concluded an agreement to establish the joint authority to study and develop the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer which come as a result of directions of the Libya and Egypt during their meeting in Tobrouk (Libya) on 17/10/1989 where the minutes of the meeting is signed by deputy prime minister and minister of Foreign affairs in Arab Republic of Egypt , and Prime ministry Of Libya.
The protocol expressed in one of its articles to establish a joint authority to study and develop the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer between the Libya and Egypt. Sudan and Chad have joint the authority in the late nineties.
This is one of the good example of Regional Corporation in study and manage shared aquifer basins or Trans-boundary water sources
