Tensiones por el proyecto de la gran presa de Etiopía en el Nilo

July 12, 2021 - Etiopía comenzó el llenado del reservoriio detrás de su la gigantesca presa hidroeléctrica, Gran Presa del Renacimiento Etíope, por segundo año, en medio de una campaña diplomática con Egipto y Sudán, que consideran la presa una amenaza para sus suministros de agua del Nilo.

Ethiopia’s prime minister has sought to reassure Egypt and Sudan that the filling of the dam “will not inflict any significant harm” on the two nations that are seeking international help to resolve a dispute over the dam’s operations.

Egypt and Sudan have said 10 years of negotiations with Ethiopia have failed and the filling of the dam’s reservoir not only violates a 2015 agreement but poses “an existential threat” to 150 million people in their downstream nations.

The dam on the Blue Nile is 80 percent complete and expected to reach full generating capacity in 2023, making it Africa’s largest hydroelectric plant. Ethiopia says the project is essential to promote economic development and make sure the vast majority of its people do not lack electricity.
