Since the 1990s, the Egyptian government has embarked on two national projects on settlement and agricultural development in the Western desert in preparation for expected future population growth. One of them is the Toshka irrigation project, which carries water from Lake Nasser through the depression of El Kharga towards Farafra Oasis. Another is the East Oweinat project, which has enlarged agricultural land in the south of the Western desert by developing water resources from underground aquifers of Nubian sandstone.
