The Ilisu dam in Turkey will remove 11 billion cubic metres per year from Tigris


The Renaissance Dam that Ethiopia has started to build across the Blue Nile will reduce the water flowing into Egypt by 10 billion cubic metres per year causing protest from the Egyptian government, public demonstrations in Cairo and international concerns are raised. The Ilisu dam in Turkey will remove 11 billion cubic metres per year from Tigris before entering Iraq but little has been said about this.
