Omo: Change in the valley


This book illustrates the beauty and diversity of the people living in the Omo Valley, as well as bringing into focus the threat to their way of life. The images are captioned by the Omo's people describing the current changes they face.Commercial farms combined with Ethiopia's new Gibe III hydroelectric dam on the Omo River will have a potentially devastating impact on the ecology of both Ethiopia’s Omo Valley and Kenya’s Lake Turkana Basin. Gibe III has been described as a potential humanitarian disaster; the possible outcomes have been likened to one of the world’s worst ecological disasters – the shrinking of the Aral Sea.
