Dams, Development and Displacement: Towards More Inclusive and Social Futures


  • Tanya Wragg-Morris

    () (IPC-IG)


As we move toward ?The Future We Want? (United Nations, 2012), broader awareness and concerns that link social, environmental and economic sustainability have become significantly more influential, at least politically. While there are clear linkages between these factors, they also have the potential individually to negate the other(s), and thus it cannot be assumed that this is still sustainable development. To be considered also are issues of social and environmental justice and, critically, the potential socio-economic costs to be borne by those targeted as beneficiaries whose lives are to bettered by taking such action.
