5 min read


The Great renaissance Dam of Ethiopia is a symbol that conveys a future shifted from vision to reality! #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica @HouseForeign @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish @AsstSecStateAF @EUSR_Weber Click To Tweet


The #GERD project is truly monumental, not just because it’s taller than the Great Pyramid in Giza, when the dam is fully operational, its generating capacity will exceed 5,000 megawatts—doubling Ethiopia’s electricity supply. #AFRICAN_DAM @SFRCdems Click To Tweet


With the #GERD operational, Ethiopia might fully electrify itself by the 2030s, without much fossil fuel in its energy mix. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @SenateForeign @hr  @EUSR_Weber @HannaTetteh @LaetitiaBader @KenRoth @amnest  @BradSherman @SFRCdems… Click To Tweet


Without electricity, the vast majority of Ethiopians rely on burning wood, dung, and other forms of biomass, and so deforestation and soil erosion has accelerated. Ethiopia badly needs #GERD. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @UKParliament @EU_Commission Click To Tweet


Once this dam and several smaller ones are completed during the coming years, Ethiopia could well become the hydropower hub for East Africa. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM  @eucopresident @vonderleyen @JanezLenarcic @PowerUSAID @USAmbUN @CanadaFP @eu_eeas… Click To Tweet


#GERD will actually benefit the downstream countries by smoothing variations in water flow and increasing water availability during low-flow months. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @SFRCdems @SenateForeign @HouseForeign @eucopresident @JosepBorrellF @trussliz Click To Tweet


Once #GERD is done it will reduce damage from floods and that Sudan will be able to purchase electricity generated by the dam. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @UKParliament @CanadaFP @UN_HRC @vonderleyen @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica… Click To Tweet


#GERD has the potential to transform development in the country. It will provide households, especially those in rural Ethiopia, with clean and affordable energy. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @HouseForeign @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish @AsstSecStateAF @EUSR_Weber Click To Tweet


#GERD is the most important public investment in the country’s history and remain quite supportive. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @SFRCdems @SenateForeign @hr  @EUSR_Weber @HannaTetteh @LaetitiaBader @KenRoth @amnest  @BradSherman @SFRCdems @UKParliament… Click To Tweet


Things need to change so that the Nile can benefit all in the region. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @EU_Commission @eucopresident @vonderleyen @JanezLenarcic @PowerUSAID @USAmbUN @CanadaFP @eu_eeas @SFRCdems @SenateForeign @HouseForeign @eucopresident Click To Tweet


There is no legal ground to stop ETHIOPIA from equitably using the Nile waters. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @JosepBorrellF @trussliz @UKParliament @CanadaFP @UN_HRC @vonderleyen @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica @HouseForeign Click To Tweet


Ethiopia aside from #GERD, will and should use the Nile waters for consumptive purposes, including irrigation. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish @AsstSecStateAF @EUSR_Weber @SFRCdems @SenateForeign @hr  @EUSR_Weber @HannaTetteh @LaetitiaBader… Click To Tweet


The reservoir behind the #GERD will fill naturally during the Blue Nile's rainy season. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @KenRoth @amnest  @BradSherman @SFRCdems @UKParliament @EU_Commission @eucopresident @vonderleyen @JanezLenarcic @USAmbUN @WorldResources… Click To Tweet


Again Ethiopia sees the #GERD as a way to bring electricity to millions of its citizens. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @eu_eeas @SFRCdems @SenateForeign @HouseForeign @eucopresident @JosepBorrellF @trussliz @UKParliament @CanadaFP @UN_HRC @vonderleyen Click To Tweet


Accusing Ethiopia of filling the dam having bad intentions - suggesting the dam was being filled deliberately gives the false impression that filling up the dam is like filling up a bath - and that Ethiopia can turn a tap on and off at will. #GERD Click To Tweet


Abay /blue nile is not our work. It is a gift of God that we are given to use it properly, Ethiopian PM H.E DR Abiy Ahmed #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica @HouseForeign @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish @AsstSecStateAF… Click To Tweet


The Great Renaissance Dam is the image of the winning Ethiopia. It demonstrates the We can Ethiopian spirit #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @EUSR_Weber @SFRCdems @SenateForeign @hr  @EUSR_Weber @LaetitiaBader @KenRoth @amnest  @BradSherman  @UKParliament… Click To Tweet


The #GERD dam will bring electricity to rural & urban homes, meaning children have proper light to read & do their homework after the sun goes down. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @EU_Commission @eucopresident @vonderleyen @JanezLenarcic @IWAHQ @USAmbUN Click To Tweet


The #GERD is now 90 percent complete, and the coming rainy season will see an estimated 17 billion cubic meters of water retained in the fourth filling of the massive reservoir created by the dam. #AFRICAN_DAM @CanadaFP @eu_eeas @JosepBorrellF Click To Tweet


For millions of Ethiopians, half of whom have no electricity and still rely on burning wood for heat, cooking, and light, the dam is a symbol of hope, pride, and a brighter future. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @trussliz @UKParliament @WorldResources Click To Tweet


When it reaches full capacity and all 13 turbines are feeding into the national power grid, #GERD will boost Ethiopia’s industrialization, revolutionize the living standards of millions of its citizens, and earn the country badly needed income frompwer sale. #GERD … Click To Tweet


From now on, there will be nothing that will stop Ethiopia. (The dam) will not disrupt the River Nile’s natural flow. - Ethiopian PM H.E DR Abiy Ahmed #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica @HouseForeign Click To Tweet


The Great Renaissance dam of Ethiopia was designed only to generate electricity, its sole purpose is lighting Ethiopia’s dark households! #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish @AsstSecStateAF @EUSR_Weber @SFRCdems @SenateForeign @hr  @EUSR_Weber… Click To Tweet


Ethiopia is making every effort to maintain the flow of Blue Nile while the reservoir is being filled yearly during months of the rainy season. After 3 fillings, Sudanese officials reported no noticeable decrease in the water level of the Nile traveling to their nation #GERD Click To Tweet


#GERD increases the 50% available water at Sudan even under dry conditions and expanded irrigation. Even in the driest possible river flow situations where the release from #GERD may get as low as 25 BCM the 50% available flow is about 38% more than without the dam #AFRICAN_DAM Click To Tweet


The #GERD will provide benefits to Egypt and Sudan, including increased water flow during dry seasons and decreased flooding events. Let's work together towards a solution that benefits all. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @LaetitiaBader @KenRoth @UKParliament Click To Tweet


Ethiopia is constructing the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (#GERD) on the Blue Nile to generate hydropower. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM #GERD  @LaetitiaBader @KenRoth @amnest  @BradSherman  @UKParliament @EU_Commission @eucopresident @vonderleyen… Click To Tweet


Ethiopian Renaissance Dam is a beacon of light designed to electrify the lives of countless Ethiopians who have lived in darkness. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @JanezLenarcic @IWAHQ @USAmbUN @CanadaFP @eu_eeas @JosepBorrellF @trussliz @UKParliament Click To Tweet


The Great Ethiopian Renaissance Dam is, not just a construction of steel and concrete, rather a powerful testament to Ethiopia's ability to craft a radiant future. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica Click To Tweet


The #GERD would serve as a timeless reminder of the vision and determination that sparked Ethiopia's march towards self-reliance and advancement. #GERD  #AFRICAN_DAM @HouseForeign @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish @AsstSecStateAF @EUSR_Weber @SFRCdems Click To Tweet
