Today the streets are alive-- 11 million people crowd the city, 68 million crowd the country. And though the bounty of the Nile is great, today the agriculture it supports is not sufficient to feed the people of Egypt. And so the pressure to use more of the Nile's water for desert irrigation mounts.

Sand Dams in Kenya
WHAT IS A SAND DAM?

downstream. The heavy sand builds up behind the dam, whereas lighter sand and...
106 species have become extinct and 314 more are at risk of extinction in the Columbia River Basin, the focus of this report. The causes of this are dams on the rivers stopping salmon from breeding and smolt from returning to the ocean, and commercial fishing boats depleting mature populations and blocking...
Agriculture in Pakistan

Point of View:
I am an economist working for the National People's Congress and I am against the building of the dam.
This is because the initial building of the dam will drain the government of its financial resources. But not only will the money be spent, but also spent on a undoubtedly failing investment...

matter. I would implement several different strategies of managing the water in the Basin. The most obvious would be to increase the number of farm dams. ‘Farm dams can intercept overland flow on its way to the stream, or capture flood water from the stream’ to store it for later use. This in particular...
