Lake Alemaya in the Ethiopian Highlands has historically provided the surrounding area with water for domestic use, irrigation, and livestock and has served as a local fishery tank.

Ethiopia, the major source of the Nile but one of the poorest countries in the Nile Basin, has recently begun to implement plans to harness more Nile water through hydroelectric and irrigation development both for national use and for transboundary development as part of the Nile Basin : Helmut Kloos.

Ethiopia isha around 3 % of the irrigation potential (MOWR). Moreover, much of the increase in irrigated area had come because of expansion of small-scale irrigation. Yet, the existing irrigation development in Ethiopia, as compared to the resource the country has, is negligible. Large-scale irrigation was started in the s in the Lake Ziway catchment, taking water directly from the lake and its two main feeder rivers Maki and Katar.

A three-phase irrigation development project was proposed covering a total area of ha. Sincemajor irrigation activities were introduced around the lake and its by: The study was carried out in km 2 Lake Tana Basin, of which the lake covers around km lake is located at 12°00′N, 37°15′E in the northwest highlands of Ethiopia (Wale et al., ).The elevation of the watershed ranges from to m and the slope ranges from 0 to % with an average slope of %.Cited by: Engineer); Peter Bisset (Consultant Irrigation Agronomist) and Ms.

A common-pool resource like lake or ocean, irrigation system, forest, internet, the atmosphere, are natural or man-made resources from which it is difficult to limit. January to December T his project was implemented in the Telalak district at Geyisu kebele to irrigate 70 hectares of farmland and benefit households.

With finances obtained from Rainbow for the Future, additional irrigation infrastructure was included to increase the irrigable area to 90 hectares. Lake Ziway, known in the local language of Oromifa as Hara Dembel, is the largest lake in Ethiopia’s Central Rift Valley and is home to thriving bird populations, shy hippos, and tilapia fish – delicious served grilled with lime.

The project was funded by the Strategic Climate Institutions Programme (SCIP) from September to December (see Annex I).

The project was commissioned out of growing concern for the socio-economic consequences of unconstrained water development in Ethiopia. Constraints and prospects of hand dug wells related to household irrigation were assessed in Hayelom watershed (∼ ha), by evaluating groundwater suitability for irrigation, soil quality and impact of intervention.
