It rains in #Ethiopia, and cotton grows in the deserts of #Egypt. It rains in Ethiopia, and the light go on Egypt. Ethiopian's rains have been magical for Egypt. Time to make that magic work for Ethiopia. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNHumanRights Click To Tweet


GERDS' successful completion is an African victory. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @hrw @UN_HRC @KenRoth @dewamavhinga @IntlCrimCourt @antonioguterres @SecBlinken @StateDRL @mbachelet @amnesty @AmnestyEARO @UNICEFEthiopia @UNGeneva @AsstSecStateAF Click To Tweet


#GERD will also have a positive impact on women's education. With access to electricity, schools and health centers can operate more efficiently, & #girls can study in well-lit environment. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @EURightsAgency @SamanthaJPower @USAIDAfrica… Click To Tweet


This current generation inherits a noble responsibility, reminiscent of our forefathers who unlocked their boundless potential. We are the architects of progress, inspiring innovation as #Ethiopia has graciously blessed us with an abundance of valuable resources. #GERD Click To Tweet


The River Nile riparian countries need to support Ethiopia's effort to ensure equitable and reasonable utilization of trans-boundary water resources #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNHumanRights @hrw @UN_HRC @KenRoth @dewamavhinga @IntlCrimCourt Click To Tweet


Most countries are tapping into the existing resources with the hope that their people get out of poverty. Ethiopia building the GERD on the Nile is no surprise! #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @antonioguterres @SecBlinken @StateDRL @mbachelet @amnesty Click To Tweet


Note that, every country in a river basin or in a trans-boundary water resource has all the rights to use this resource to their own benefit based on the principle of equitable and reasonable utilization of trans-boundary waters. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @AsstSecStateAF Click To Tweet


The unequal allocation, coupled with the fact that Egypt contributes no water to the Nile, undermines the principles of equitable and reasonable use. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNICEFEthiopia @UNGeneva @EURightsAgency @SamanthaJPower Click To Tweet


The lack of cooperation among Riparian countries is perpetuating colonial vestiges in the Nile riparian countries. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNHumanRights @hrw @UN_HRC @KenRoth @dewamavhinga @IntlCrimCourt @antonioguterres @SecBlinken @StateDRL Click To Tweet


The continued retention of colonial vestiges in the Nile basin perpetuates an unequal power dynamic and obstructs the vision of cooperative management and development of shared resources. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @mbachelet @amnesty Click To Tweet


There have to be a revisit and revision of the existing agreements in the Nile basin, ensuring that they reflect the principles of fairness, inclusivity, and shared benefits among all riparian countries. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @AmnestyEARO Click To Tweet


Only by rectifying the historical injustices and embracing cooperative frameworks can the Nile riparian countries move beyond the colonial legacy and foster a more harmonious management of the Nile resource. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM Click To Tweet


It is essential for African leaders to transcend national interests and embrace a collective vision for the Nile Basin. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNICEFEthiopia @UNGeneva @AsstSecStateAF @EURightsAgency @SamanthaJPower @USAIDAfrica @UNHumanRights Click To Tweet


African Leaders, by recognizing and actively pursuing common interests, can foster responsible resource development, promote environmental sustainability, and safeguard the well-being of both present and future generations. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @hrw @UN_HRC @KenRoth Click To Tweet


Only through genuine collaboration and a shared commitment to cooperative management can the Nile riparian countries effectively address the challenges and seize the opportunities that lie ahead. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNHumanRights Click To Tweet


Efficient collaboration in the management and development of trans-boundary water resources within the Nile basin is not only essential for water-related issues but also plays a pivotal role in achieving regional integration. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @hrw @UN_HRC Click To Tweet


The Nile basin, being the largest in Africa, provides a unique opportunity for riparian countries to strengthen their ties, foster dialogue, and work towards shared goals. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @KenRoth @dewamavhinga @IntlCrimCourt Click To Tweet


Cooperation among Nile nations is a fundamental step in acknowledging the interconnectedness of the region and should not be underestimated. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @antonioguterres @SecBlinken @StateDRL @mbachelet @amnesty @AmnestyEARO Click To Tweet


By embracing their shared history and destiny, Nile nations can work together more effectively to achieve mutually beneficial goals. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNICEFEthiopia @UNGeneva @AsstSecStateAF @EURightsAgency @SamanthaJPower @USAIDAfrica Click To Tweet


Only through collaborative efforts can the Nile riparian countries fully unlock their potential and pave the way for a more integrated and prosperous region. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNHumanRights @hrw @UN_HRC @KenRoth @dewamavhinga Click To Tweet


Without modifying or renegotiating the current agreements to include climate-proofing measures, the Nile riparian countries face the imminent threat of inadequate management and development of water resources in response to these extreme events. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM Click To Tweet


By failing to address the climate uncertainties, riparian countries are at risk of exacerbating water scarcity, environmental degradation, and socio-economic instability within the basin. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @IntlCrimCourt @antonioguterres Click To Tweet


Cooperative efforts in climate adaptation and resilience-building are essential to secure the future well-being and prosperity of the Nile riparian countries. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @SecBlinken @StateDRL @mbachelet @amnesty @AmnestyEARO Click To Tweet


By committing to a basin-wide agreement, the riparian countries would enhance their collective ability to address climate-related challenges, such as water scarcity, extreme weather events, and ecological disruptions. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM Click To Tweet


The prevailing approach to cooperative management of shared river basins, which primarily centers around the allocation of water volumes, perpetuates a zero-sum game mentality. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNICEFEthiopia @UNGeneva @AsstSecStateAF Click To Tweet


In the case of the Nile, instead of exclusively emphasizing sharing the water, the focus should shift towards sharing the benefits of water use. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @EURightsAgency @SamanthaJPower @USAIDAfrica @UNHumanRights @hrw Click To Tweet


By perpetuating the zero-sum game mentality, riparian countries risk entrenching a confrontational approach, hindering the fair distribution of benefits and exacerbating tensions. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UN_HRC @KenRoth @dewamavhinga Click To Tweet


It is essential for all Nile riparian countries to recognize the broader spectrum of advantages that can be derived from water resources and engage in constructive dialogue. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @IntlCrimCourt @antonioguterres @SecBlinken Click To Tweet


By embracing a cooperative mindset that transcends zero-sum thinking, the Nile Riparian countries can explore innovative approaches to benefit sharing, foster equitable development, and reduce the potential for conflicts. #FilltheDam! #GERD @StateDRL Click To Tweet


The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam #GERD is a prime example of Ethiopia’s commitment to harnessing its hydropower potential. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @mbachelet @AmnestyEARO @UNICEFEthiopia @UNGeneva @AsstSecStateAF @EURightsAgency Click To Tweet


Looking ahead, Ethiopia’s energy market is poised for significant growth, as the country continues to invest in expanding its energy infrastructure and diversifying its energy mix. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @SamanthaJPower @USAIDAfrica Click To Tweet


The completion of the GERD will undoubtedly contribute greatly to increasing Ethiopia’s power generation capacity and improving access to electricity for its population. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNHumanRights @hrw @UN_HRC @KenRoth Click To Tweet


Egypt’s unwarranted attempts to involve the Arab League in the Abay Dam negotiation is a clear disregard to the African Union (AU) and Africa’s capability of solving problems in own capability. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @dewamavhinga Click To Tweet


Egypt’s approach in the Abay Dam contradicts the continental motto of seeking African solutions to African problems. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @IntlCrimCourt @antonioguterres @SecBlinken @StateDRL @mbachelet @AmnestyEARO @UNICEFEthiopia Click To Tweet


The construction of the Great Renaissance dam of Ethiopia is compliance with the 2015 Declaration of Principles signed among the three countries namely Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt in Khartoum. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNGeneva @AsstSecStateAF Click To Tweet


Nile is found in Africa and the dam is an African project but Egypt keeps politicizing the issue and attempts to internationalize the matter by dragging the Arab League, which has no mandate to convey in the subject. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM Click To Tweet


Attempting to take the matter of the construction of the #GERD out of Africa hampers the AU’s aspiration of settling contentious issue amicably. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @EURightsAgency @SamanthaJPower @USAIDAfrica @UNHumanRights @hrw Click To Tweet


Ethiopia reiterates its commitment to the AU-led trilateral process to address any remaining concerns. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UN_HRC @KenRoth @dewamavhinga @IntlCrimCourt @antonioguterres @SecBlinken @StateDRL @mbachelet @AmnestyEARO Click To Tweet


Ethiopia will not be impeded by the rhetoric of some actors that seek to monopolize the use of the shared African River. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNICEFEthiopia @UNGeneva @AsstSecStateAF @EURightsAgency @SamanthaJPower @USAIDAfrica Click To Tweet


The equitable and reasonable use of resources will enhance cooperation and the Abay Dam is one such example and it is both a national and an African project that aims to lift millions in the region out of poverty. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM Click To Tweet


GERD will be a vehicle of regional integration. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNHumanRights @hrw @UN_HRC @KenRoth @dewamavhinga @IntlCrimCourt @antonioguterres @SecBlinken @StateDRL @mbachelet @AmnestyEARO @UNICEFEthiopia @UNGeneva Click To Tweet


Lack of political will and tendencies of maintaining hegemonic use over the shared resource continue to hinder cooperation in the Nile River. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @AsstSecStateAF @EURightsAgency @SamanthaJPower @USAIDAfrica @UNHumanRights Click To Tweet


Evidently, the last three fillings have not affected the Nile lower riparian countries and the rest of the fillings will not be any different. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @hrw @UN_HRC @KenRoth @dewamavhinga @IntlCrimCourt @antonioguterres Click To Tweet


The #GERD is near completion withstanding the rhetoric of some actors that seek to hinder Ethiopia’s attempts to lift millions of its citizens out of poverty. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @SecBlinken @StateDRL @mbachelet @AmnestyEARO @UNICEFEthiopia Click To Tweet


The first, second, and third filling of the #GERD were successful, with no adverse effects. It will be the same with the impending fourth filling. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNGeneva @AsstSecStateAF @EURightsAgency @SamanthaJPower @USAIDAfrica Click To Tweet


Egypt should stop hurling threats and look to the benefits GERD will offer to the region. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNGeneva @AsstSecStateAF @EURightsAgency @SamanthaJPower @USAIDAfrica Click To Tweet


We should be proud of our country when we have done something to be proud of, when we have lived up to our own standards. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UNHumanRights @hrw @UN_HRC @KenRoth @dewamavhinga @IntlCrimCourt @antonioguterres @SecBlinken Click To Tweet


The Nile riparian must adhere to a way of inculcating the culture of resolving any differences only through an African led process. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @StateDRL @mbachelet @AmnestyEARO @UNICEFEthiopia @UNGeneva @AsstSecStateAF Click To Tweet


Our waters are among the main natural resources that Ethiopia has been endowed with and are the pillars of our development efforts. #FilltheDam! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @EURightsAgency @SamanthaJPower @USAIDAfrica @UNHumanRights @hrw @UN_HRC @KenRoth Click To Tweet
