Letters from Alitiena: Book Review

by Ziade Hailu
December, 2011

That this book review may reach you well the noble inhabitants of America, Europe, Asia Africa and Middle East, who read my previous opinion pieces, provide me comments which are more beautiful than the full ears of corn on fertile field, to me, poor reviewer in the desert of Abyssinia, Ziade, the son of Hailu, son of Weldu from the tribe of Irob. Or that is how Dillibis would start his book review, or again how a Somali would begin to write her autobiography. (Click HERE to read the Full Text)

Experiences with Lake Sedimentation in Assabol Reservoir Three Years after Completion of Dam

This document shall help to share our experiences in struggling for an optimised water management and sediment flushing with other people of the world, and
especially with Ethiopian engineers and Ethiopian scholars/students. This paper complements the findings of the thesis of my son Andres Strebel (summer rains
2006, refer attached document). Based on intensive observations of lake behaviour (including photo monitoring) and in comparison to land shaping processes observed in the rivers of the upper watershed, I take the (scientific) risk of making forecasts, based on very little data available.

The Deadly Exodus of Irob Youth

IRROB.org has sadly learned that during this current month of June 2010 two Irob youths died of dehydration and starvation on the Sudanese territory in an overcrowded small car during a long journey to Sinai, Egypt. They were heading to their destination, Israel. According to the information received from Israel via telephone communication, the two young Irobs (their names are omitted purposely from mentioning here) were from Bobo (Addaga) and Aiga villages of Irob (Erob) Woreda, Northeastern Ethiopia, and were students who completed high school level education.(To read the full text, CLICK HERE!)

  • "The present study is concerned with the sedimentation in the Assabol watershed in North Ethiopia and was conducted between July 2006 and July 2007. The main part of the evaluated data was acquired during the field study in summer 2006 in the watershed area (6 July to 9 September 2006). The aim of this study is to get a better understanding of the sedimentation processes in the watershed of the Assabol Flood Water Harvesting Scheme, especially with regards to the sediments filling the reservoir of this scheme. The Harvesting Scheme is initiated by the ADDA (Adigrat Diocesan Development Action) and the thesis should reveal practical information for this project. The thesis is written under the lead of Prof. Dr. H. Hurni from the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE) at the University of Bern." (Andres Strebel)

  • Dreams! Dreams! Dreams!

"To dream is easy, but to turn a dream into a reality may often be beyond practical expectations. Nightmares,
however, may give birth to the dreams. How could the people living to the east of Adigrat on the steep slopes
of the Rift Valley be saved from repeated droughts and hunger? How could those people be provided with a
minimum of food security? How could the quality of their lives be improved? Their self-reliance was a remote
dream, an ambitious ideal, but too hazy to be seen as a practical short-term objective ..."
