NWNL images from the Omo River Basin are featured in a recent article by Peter Bosshard, How Chinese Loans Could Fuel Regional Conflict in East Africa. He writes, “The indigenous peoples of the Lower Omo Valley and Lake Turkana are extremely poor, but well-armed. They have a long history of resource conflicts over water, fisheries, and grazing land.” An extended version of this commentary also appeared, in English and Chinese, on chinadialogue.
