Ethiopian Water, Irrigation and Energy Minister Seleshi Bekele said that the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) saved Sudan from worse damages due to floods during the rainy season.
The dam on the Blue Nile, he underlined, not only will be an important source of power generation for our nation, but it will also increase the capacity of other countries in the region.
In addition to promoting the development of renewable energies and guaranteeing other benefits for the life of millions of people, it will help optimize the management and storage of water during periods of drought and floods, Bekele added.
Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt are holding negotiations about how to run the dam, but after several years of meetings, technical reports, declarations of interests and the efforts of several mediators, they have not reached an agreement.
I told you! The dam was designed and is being built to the finish to have far reaching positive ramifications both for Sudan and Egypt itself. One of them is mitigating the worst case of flooding to nearby Sudan and also minimizing the amount of water being lost to evaporation before it gets to Egypt. Is somebody upstairs in Al-Qahirah? Hello! Hello!!! Hello!!! I gave up!!!
