This image was taken for No Water No Life®, an organization documenting the Omo River Basin and 5 others in Africa and North America to raise the awareness of the value and vulnerability of our freshwater resources.

In the Lower Omo Valley the Karo village of Korcho depends annual floods for their agriculture, but a series of upstream dams will stop the floods, so the government is moving the villages away from the rivers and selling the land to Korean cotton farmers.
