The Future of Omo River in Ethiopia



PDF, ebook, epub (ePub, fb2, mobi)

Water is one of the resources whose usage is considered strategic for the future geo-political assets. Dams have always been one of the symbols of human endeavours enabling one to produce low-cost energy and to control floods for agriculture. However, the so-called 'large dams', massive artificial bodies, have been built more and more, requiring complex arrangements from a technical point of view. If they have been seen as a feasible solution for different problems by governments, they can heavily damage local human conditions. This is what is happening in the Omo River in Ethiopia. The government wants to frog-leap towards 'modernity' bypassing the rights and the uses of local populations through the construction of the 4th largest dam of the world, Gibe III. Two hundred thousand people are under threat for the on-going environmental consequences, facing as well the effects of climate change. Therefore, the work wants to shed further light on the developmental issues of Ethiopia, trying to depict a broad frame of analysis through a social-ecological perspective on the current drama of Omo River.

Like my adventure to the Danakil Depression my trip to Ethiopias Omo Valley region took me to one of the most remote parts of this incredible country.. One such village lies on the west bank of the Omo practically opposite Omorate and can be reached by utilizing the flatbottomed boat that serves as a ferry across the river police escort mandatory Another similar village lies about 20 minutes walk south of the town center on the east bank of the river. If Ethiopia completes the Gibe III Dam now under construction on the Middle Omo River and continues to press ahead with largescale irrigation developments . Map of Ethiopia showing some of the main rivers. The tribes of the Lower Omo Valley in Ethiopia live in close contact with nature and the river they depend on . Located in the South this distant region feels like a world away from Northern Ethiopia with a rural and tropical feel it was more reminiscent of subSaharan Africa than anywhere else in the country.
