Ethiopia Should Be Paid For Nile Basin Ecosystem Services


Ethiopia deserves and should claim payment for ecosystem services from other Nile riparian countries, said Girmachew Addisu Hydrologist and Former Irrigation and Drainage Monitoring Specialist at Abbay Basin Authority. This is because the conservation activities along the basin in terms of sustainable water and underground water supply among others will benefit downstream countries, Girmachew said.
