Author
International Water Management Institute (IWMI)
Description

Lake Tana is valuable for many people, including the communities who live around the lakeshore, those living on islands and close to the Blue Nile River, which flows from it. The area has been identified as a region for irrigation and hydropower development, which are vital for food security and economic growth in Ethiopia. This report presents findings from an integrated multidisciplinary study that was conducted to investigate the implications of this development. The study comprised three components: i) an environmental flow evaluation; ii) a stakeholder analysis of the impact of current infrastructure and water management; and iii) computer modeling of future water resources development.
