Gibe III Dam in Ethiopia

The Gibe III dam on the Omo River in southwestern Ethiopia is moving toward completion.  The Washington-based Institute for Defense Analyses published on 26 January 2015 an article titled "African Hydropolitics--Ethiopia's Other Dam" by George F. Ward. 

Because of its environmental impact on the lower Omo River in Ethiopia and Lake Turkana in Kenya, this has been a controversial project.  The author concludes that in spite of these concerns Ethiopia is likely to continue its progress toward an initial operating capability later this year.
