Large Dams: Long Term Impacts on Riverine Communities and Free Flowing Rivers

Over the past three decades, mention of large dams often brings very different reactions from water and environment professionals. Water professionals generally consider dams as necessary structures, which are essential to ensure water, food and energy securities of the world. Environmentalists, in turn, consider them to be unnecessary and mostly cause more harms to the society than benefits. The debate between both sides is still continuing, and there are no indications that it will be settled definitively one way or another any time soon.
