FT REPORT ON THE THREE GORGES DAM

By ADRIAN ELY, STEPS Centre member


The Financial Times today has a special report by Jamil Anderlini on the Three Gorges Dam in Hubei Province, China. The report covers several of the issues raised in an earlier blog following my visit to the dam in June, arguing that the environmental and social impacts of the project are being increasingly recognised, with budgetary implications for Beijing. There is also a series of three interesting videos in which Jamil talks to local politicians and members of the communities displaced as a result of the dam's construction.
