One of the most controversial dams in history has been inaugurated. The Gibe III dam has put an end to the natural flooding of Ethiopia’s Omo River, on which 100,000 indigenous people depend and a further 100,000 rely indirectly.
Survival International has received reports that the smallest and most vulnerable tribe in Ethiopia’s Lower Omo Valley is starving, as a result of the destruction of their forest and river.
Representatives of some of Ethiopia’s biggest aid donors are to send a team to the southwest of the country to investigate persistent reports of human rights abuses amongst the tribes living there.
The UN’s growing concern over Ethiopia’s construction of the Gibe III dam has prompted it to demand urgent information from the African state.
