Three Gorges Dam: A Model of the Past
The Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River is the worldâ€™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 projectâ€™s legacy for generations to come. [IRN Fact Sheet].
