Water Flow Risks and Stakeholder Impacts on the Choice of a Dam Site
AbstractThis study evaluates three alternative locations for building a fresh water dam in the Yesilirmak Valley of North Cyprus. Each of the three sites has different investment costs, water storage capabilities and socio-political repercussions. These kinds of tradeoffs have in recent years characterized much of the worldwide debate surrounding the construction of electricity and irrigation dams. Another issue raised in the paper is the appreciate treatment of the risk and variability associated with the availability of water to fill the dam through time. This paper demonstrates how an integrated financial-economic-stakeholder analysis can provide the inputs needed by decision makers in such a situation to make political and economic choices
