Problems along the River Quangga

 Q:   Ask a Question about Problems along the River Quangga       
Problems along the River Quangga by Cristina Nuta -

Water is very important to our continent and humans use a great quantity of water, even if only 3% of the world's water is fresh water. And if we pollute water which feeds our towns, then we are going to have huge problems. A few years ago there was a complicated situation as four countries used water from a single river, the Quagga, each one using its water in its own benefits.

The River Quagga flows through four countries: Alessia, Bordang, Chartis and Dinder. For thousands of years the economy of each country has been based on agriculture and the water from the river has been used to irrigate the crops. Now, however, some of the countries are starting to change their economies.

The first problem is that Alessia has very little wood or coal to make electrici ty. The World Bank lent the country $200 million and, with the money, a dam has been built to generate hydroelectricity for the growing population. As a result, the other countries now have much less water to irrigate their crops. However, Alessia has offered to build a new water pipeline to the other countries.

The second problem is that farmers in Bordang have been persuaded to grow sugar cane and other cash crops. Bordang can export the crops but they need much more water than traditional crops. In many places the route of the river has been changed to irrigate the new crops. This means that the level of the river in Chartis and Dinder is often much lower than it used to be.

Another problem is that Chartis has built many new chemical and paint factories along the river. Dinder thinks that the factories in Chartis have put a lot of chemicals into the river. A lot of fish have died and it is dangerous to swim or wash in the river in Dinder.

Last but not least, Dinder will also contribute to the problems. Their capital city used to be in the south-east of the country, but now gold has been discovered near the River Quangga. The government has decided to move the capital to the north-west and wants to build three big reservoirs for the eight million people who will live in the new city. However, there is not enough water to fill the reservoirs.

Still, presidents of these countries had to meet and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each country and reach an agreement.
