Case Study: The Three Gorges Dam

Subjects / Geography / Weather and Climate

Price: £1.95 Duration: 9mins Full topic price: £11.95

The Three Gorges Dam in China is the world's largest hydroelectric power project. It sets records for the number of people displaced - more than 1.2 million; number of cities and towns flooded - 13 cities, 140 towns, 1350 villages; and length of reservoir - more than 600 kilometres. The Three Gorges Dam has been beset by controversy, not least because of the resettlement difficulties, the environmental damage and the human rights violations. This case study will examine why the Three Gorges Dam was needed, the effects it has had and how the dam could have been managed more sustainably.
