Ethiopian dam on Nile raises concerns

Egypt is concerned about the new Ethiopian dam's possible impact on the flow of the river.

    For thousands of years, the Nile River has provided for the people living along its banks.

    For Ethiopia, this is the key to its prosperity. The country has started a dam project that will solve the country's desperate electricity problem.

    However, Great Renaissance Dam has raised concerns in other Nile countries, particularly in Egypt, which is concerned about the dam's possible impact on the flow of the river.
