Active Minds: The Nile River
In 2020, the controversial Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam began operating on a section of the Nile River in Ethiopia. When the reservoir is filled (likely around 2026), the dam will power the largest hydroelectric plant in Africa. Egypt has opposed the dam, fearing that it could cut off or reduce water to their country. Join Active Minds as we explore this great river, following its winding path through history as well as its modern role in the world.
