A damming report (of the good kind)

I vaguely recall lessons featuring the Aswan High Dam from high school. Vaguely, because our geography teacher was famous for making even the most scintillating of subjects a chore, so hydropower in Egypt had no chance. If I’d had something like Al Jazeera’s report on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam and what it will do the Nile delta to be inspired by, there’s every chance I would be a civil engineer today. Developer Mohammed Haddad has put everything into this – maps, charts, juxtapositions, quizzes – but put it together so artfully, with his trademark chunked up style that is easy to read on social, that it’s never overwhelming, always engaging, and loads at the speed of light.
