Description: * London book launch chaired by Nelson Mandela* Dams are a major environmental issue in the US* The only fully comprehensive and independent review of the performance and impacts of dams* Product of unprecedented consultation, involving the World Bank, World Conservation Union, governments, industry and civil society* Presents a new framework for developing water and energy resources* Sets out seven strategic priorities for the futureLarge dams are the focus of efforts to manage both water and energy resources. By 2000, the world had built 45,000. Yet they can also bring huge problems of environmental damage and social dislocation. Establishing the role of large dams is vital for the future and for sustainable forms of development.This report is the outcome of extensive public policy and consultation efforts bringing governments, the private sector and civil society representatives into one process. It challenges prevailing assumptions and sets out clearly why dams are built and what impacts they have, for better and worse. From this evidence it presents a new framework for developing energy and water resources and an agenda of seven priorities with guidelines for decision making. The result is essential reading for all parties involved with the future for large dam construction.
