What's New With Mekdes Tsegaye


The North African country had for quite some time been against any improvement on the Nile upstream that could diminish the measure of water it gets from the stream and has viewed the Ethiopian undertaking as an existential danger. 


The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (Gerd), which has been in development since 2011, is presently keeping down water - and contains 4.9 billion cubic meters (bcm) of the Blue Nile's water after this present season's downpours. 


This is regardless of Egypt's request that no filling should occur without a legitimately official understanding of how the procedure will be overseen. 


In another four to six years the store, which sits behind what will be Africa's biggest hydroelectric plant when it comes into activity, is required to arrive at 74bcm.
