Bujagali Dam: A Climate Sensitive Investment?

The Bujagali dam should provide Uganda with the energy the country desperately needs. But problems have been surrounding the project ever since it started. Because of the dam, lands of the local people will be submerged, changing the local environment drastically and giving people fewer options to use their natural resources. At the same time the water level of Lake Victoria (that supplies the dam with water) is dropping because of global climate change. Therefore the dam will likely produce less power than projected and have a higher electricity price for the people of Uganda.
