Causes, Dynamics, and Consequences of Internal Displacement in Ethiopia
A Battle Over Water Resources: Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan’s Impending Water War - andaluciapodemos.info
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the patterns and trends of drought incidence in north east highlands of Ethiopia using monthly rainfall record for the period Standard precipitation index and Mann — Kendal test were used to analyze drought incident and trends of drought occurrences, respectively. The spatial extent of droughts in the study area has been interpolated by inverse distance weighted method using the spatial analyst tool of ArcGIS. The year was the most drastic and distinct-wide extreme drought episode in all studied stations.
The Nile, a lifeline for the ten countries it passes through, supplies both water and electricity, to include Sudan and Egypt. Further upstream approximately 30km from the Sudanese border, Ethiopia is building the GERD which will affect the water that the Sudan and Egypt receive. When realized, this will be the largest hydropower project in Africa. Owned and operated by the Ethiopian Electric Power company, the m-tall roller-compacted concrete gravity dam will flood 1, km2 at a normal pool elevation of m, and will have a tributary catchment of , km2.
California is a coastal state in western USA. It has deserts to the east, but there is usually plenty of rainfall to provide water along the coast. California has experienced drought since Irrigated crops use a lot of the freshwater supplies in the region. Rising temperatures, falling rainfall levels and a growing population are also contributing to the problem.
