Description


Aswan High Dam is a rock-fill dam located at the northern border between Egypt and Sudan.

The dam is fed by the River Nile and the reservoir forms Lake Nasser.

Construction for the project began in 1960 and was completed in 1968. It was officially inaugurated in 1971.

The total investment for constructing the dam reached $1bn.

With a reservoir capacity of 132km³, the Aswan High Dam provides water for around 33,600km of irrigation land. It serves the irrigation needs of both Egypt and Sudan, controls flooding, generates power, and helps in improving navigation across the Nile.
