2 ADDIS ABABA: Gibe III Hydro power project, which is expected to generate 1870 MW upon completion, is among the mega projects launched by the government to meet its own as well as neighboring country s demand for electricity energy. But some environmentalists and lobbyist groups campaign against the project saying it will reduce the volume of Omo River which is a tributary to Lake Turkana and consequently affect the local people in Kenya. Kenyan Ambassador to Ethiopia Dr. Monica Juma, who visited the project site recently, told Ethiopian Press Agency reporters: The issue of Turkana is much greater than the Omo River. It has to do with the ecology, climate change, land use and volumes of water as well as rain and so forth. Besides, Omo is not the only water resource that feeds Lake Turkana. The Ambassador said that Lake Turkana is not only Kenyan affair but is also an Ethiopian issue. Given the ecology, it is important for us to understand what really is making the Lake Turkana shrink and the question is what we should do in order to reconstitute the lake, Dr. Juma said. According to the ambassador, the region is where foreign tourists are coming in frequently and some people want to retain some of these places to make documentation to show the way of life people lead as others lived many centuries ago. I think, we have to deal with this. Unless one visits Gibe III, he/she would not understand that it is impossible to undertake irrigation on that river because of the area s typography, the ambassador said. She also said that hydroelectric projects also by their nature do not affect the flow of waters. The ambassador said: Kenya eyes the development and the degree of transferability of this project because we are also quite interested in the development of clean energy and hydroelectric power. Gibe III project has greater significance to Kenya as it is one of the world source of energy. Ambassador Juma also expressed conviction the two countries will design mutually acceptable frameworks to address bigger challenges than the issue of Gibe III. She said: This is one of the regions both in the southern Ethiopia and northern Kenya that is least developed and very fragile. The debate has to be to on what we must do with this region that has been impacted so negatively by a range of factors, she said. We need to respond to the need of our people. We have to find the way of catapulting this area into modern face of development. The people on the Omo basin and Lake Turkana deserve good value of life, development and we have the obligation to cooperate in the way that provides improved living standards of these areas, the Ambassador said. Ambassador briefing the journalist 2

3 Message from the Project Manager joint effort exerted by the government as well as local and expatriate staff and management. Azeb Asnake, Gibe III Hydroelectric Project Manager Melkam Gena and Timket with heartfelt greetings to all staff of Gibe III Hydroelectric Project, at the celebration of the Birth and Baptism of Jesus Christ and the 2012 New year for Expatriate staff. Celebrations like Gena & Timket reminds us to think about energy as the demand reaches to its peak. Due to the fact that production of reliable and sustainable energy is a prerequisite for socioeconomic development, the government of Ethiopia has given due attention and highest priority to meet the ever increasing demands of energy. It is my great pleasure to announce that we are celebrating Gena and Timket, while two of our major milestones of the project; completion of excavation of the dam and commencement of the Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) placement work and the construction of Gibe III- Wolayta-Addis Ababa 400kV power Transmission and sub-station Project works are begun. Generally speaking; the progress of Gibe III Hydroelectric Project is in the right track. At this juncture, I would like to appreciate all involved in the project for their utmost contribution in undertaking the project for its timely completion. I again call up on all concerned parties of the project; especially those at site to strengthen and continue their joint effort to realize the Project in due time. Once again, I would like to wish Melkam Gena & Timket and Happy New year to all local and expatriate staff of the project. I thank you. The recent inaugurated Finchaa-Amerti-Neshe power plant (97MW), the Adama and Ashegoda wind power projects that are under construction are among the positive additions to the existing power generation in Ethiopia.. Furthermore, the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance and Gibe III Hydroelectric Projects; which are expected to generate 5250MW and 1870MW of electric power respectively, are under construction. Currently, Gibe III is progressing well with the 3

7 . HIV/AIDS Related Issues It has been a long time talking about HIV/ AIDS epidemic in all sectors. The pandemic is most likely affect the adult community according to World Health Organization (WHO). As it is the problem of the adult community, workers in different sectors are the hardest hit portion of any country. Thus, the situation of HIV/AIDS in GIBE III Hydroelectric project is not different. There is a mobile concentration of labor force, currently there are more than 4000 workers, due to the immigration of workforce to the project area the risk of HIV infection is expected to increase from time to time. High mobility, being far from their homes and families, isolation and working in confined environment, majority are very young adults or in sexually active age groups, peer pressure to seek out entertainment through alcohol or sex, and misinformation or lack of information about HIV/AIDS are factors which may expose workers to the risk of HIV infection. Currently the contractor, Salini, in collaboration with World Learning Ethiopia (W.L.E) working to address the problem of HIV/AIDS and its impact among the workers and adjoining communities. Peer education and training program are the Strategies adopted to bring behavioral change among the workers in the Project site and adjoining Community. Out of the strategies used to combat HIV/AIDS, Information, Education and Communication (IEC), access to condom, Voluntary counseling and testing (VCT), Peer education, ABC (Abstinence, Being faithful, and Condom use) are widely recognized. In such activity, progresses have been registered. Among the registered remarks, 63 Construction workers, 16 vulnerable women, 24 In -school youth from Yelo Kebel have been trained. Meanwhile 1045 people are referred to Yelo health center for HIV/AIDS voluntary counseling and testing by In-school youth peer educators during January- December2011. In addition to this, 1219 construction workers referred to health facilities and other service providers for Health Counseling &Testing (HCT), Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI), Anti-Retroviral Treatment (ART) and Care and support. World AIDs Day Celebrated at Gibe III HEP WORLD AIDS DAY which takes place annually on December 1 st is celebrated at the Gibe III Hydroelectric Project site from December 31 st 2011 to January 1 st 2012 under the theme Getting to zero: Zero new infections, Zero discrimination and Zero AIDS deaths. Gibe III hydroelectric project Site Coordinator, representatives from EEPCo HIV/AIDS secretariat, Salini Costruttori, Loma and Kindo Didaye Woreda health offices are among the participants who attended the ceremony. Furthermore, around 2700 construction workers have participated in the event. Dawro Cultural Troupe 7

8 In the celebration the invited Dawro cultural troupe, entertain the audience through playing traditional and modern music, and performing dances, drama shows related to HIV/AIDS, colored the festivity. The program concluded by a keynotes addressed by the representatives on HIV/AIDS prevention effects with the emphasis on the importance of changing high risk behavior to reduce transmission of HIV among most at risk population in the project area and the surrounding community. Meanwhile 241 participants received services of mobile Voluntary counseling and testing on the spot which was rendered by Yelo health center. World HIV/AIDS Day Celebrated Colorfully 8
