The implications of climate change for water resource development in the Blue Nile River (Global Water Forum)

This article evaluates the impact of climate change on the performance of existing and planned irrigation and hydropower schemes in the Ethiopian portion of the Blue Nile River. The results show that climate change will constrain the technical performance of large reservoirs with knock-on effects for agriculture and electricity production.

Against this background water resource development in the basin requires interventions that bolster resilience and water security. This requires much more systematic planning of water storage and greater cooperation between the riparian states.
