Three Gorges Dam: A Model of the Past
AbstractThe Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River is the world’s largest and most controversial hydropower project. The 600 kilometer-long reservoir has displaced 1.3 million people and is wreaking havoc with the environment. The reservoir reached its final height in 2010, but many of its impacts are only now becoming apparent. China will deal with the project’s legacy for generations to come. [IRN Fact Sheet].
