Hydropower: a problem but also part of the solution
More than 3,000 hydropower dams across the world are currently under construction. Many of them have been associated with enormous social and environmental impacts that have resulted in declining fish productivity downstream, and shattered livelihoods. These problems repeat themselves in one dam after another. The presentation explores ways in which planning could begin to address these problems and offer solutions to the need for energy, food, and sustainability.
