"Economy-wide assessment of the impacts of Nile sediment reduction on the Sudanese construction sector"
by Siddig, Khalid and Mohammed Basheer


Abstract
This study is a first attempt to quantify GERD’s economy-wide impacts on Sudan due to the anticipated reduction in fired clay brick production. We use results from previous studies on sediment load reduction because of GERD’s long-term operation as an estimate for the reduction in fired brick production in Sudan. We conduct a structured survey among construction engineers in Sudan to estimate the importance of fired clay brick to the construction sector of Sudan’s economy. We then develop a Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model for Sudan to investigate the economy-wide effects of GERD-induced changes in the production and use of fired clay brick.
