Gibe III Dam will bring stable electric power to 11 million people in Ethiopia. But the 200,000 tribal people down stream in the Omo River Valley with their rich and distinct culture depend on the flood recession agriculture that will disappear and will be starving when the water is diverted. ..The plan for the dam includes a 10 day release--a fake flood-- but the water is released from the middle of the dam and won't help the people down river.
