Ethiopia: Who benefits from Nile Dam, GERD?

Ethiopia is building the Grand Renaissance Dam, which when completed next year, will be Africa’s biggest hydroelectric power plant.

Its construction began in 2011 on the Blue Nile tributary in the northern Ethiopia highlands from where 85% of the Nile’s waters flow.
