In Africa, War Over Water Looms As Ethiopia Nears Completion Of Nile River Dam

A new mega-dam being built by Ethiopia on the Nile River is threatening to spark a war over water and shift political influence in northeastern Africa.

Ethiopia sees the dam as the key to its economic future, but its neighbor to the north, Egypt, fears the dam could spell doom for its water supply, says BBC Africa correspondent Alastair Leithead. The Nile supplies nearly 85 percent of all water in Egypt, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

The $4 billion Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam would tower over 500 feet and will generate more than three times the amount of energy produced by the Hoover Dam in the U.S. When completed, it will be the largest dam in Africa and will generate up to 6,450 megawatts of energy.

"Egypt has had control politically of the Nile for millennia," Leithead tells Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson. "And suddenly Ethiopia has now come along — in the middle of the Arab Spring, they started building this dam — now they can, if they want, to control the flow. They say that's not what this is about."

Leading Economists: A Strong Carbon Price Needed to Drive Large-Scale Climate Action | Energy and Environmental Security | Scoop.it
Meeting the world’s agreed climate goals in the most cost-effective way
while fostering growth requires countries to set a strong carbon price,
with the goal of reaching $40-$80 per tonne of CO2 by 2020 and $50-100 per
tonne by 2030. That’s the key conclusion of the High-Level Commission on
Carbon Prices, led by Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz and Lord Nicholas
Stern.
