Pinching the Lifeline: NGO Forum on Water, Land and Human Rights

When: Sat., Oct. 17, 4-5:30 p.m. 2015

The Kara depend on the annual flood cycle to replenish their land and to nourish their livestock. Their way of life is threatened by the construction of a giant hydroelectric dam on the Upper Omo River and land grabs by foreign investors and governments for the production of cotton and sugar cane. An NGO forum, moderated by David Bolling, will explore the impact of these issues—featuring Anuradha Mittal of the Oakland Institute, Muadi Mukenge, of the Global Fund for Women, Lori Pottinger of International Rivers, and Stephen Corry of Survival International. Seating is limited, please register at

Price: $15, $10 SVMA Members
