Reservoirs created by dams not only suppress floods but also provide water for activities such as irrigation, human consumption, industrial use, aquaculture, and navigability. Hydropower is often used in conjunction with dams to generate electricity. A dam can also be used to collect water or for storage of.

Some of the problems faced for rural development in India are as follows: 1. The financial, manpower and managerial resources devoted to the implementation of rural development programmes are utterly inadequate.

Better implementation of rural d. Introduction. Over the past several decades, there have been heated debates over the pros and cons of building large dams. 3 Beyond the physical and ecological impacts associated with hydropower projects, such debates also focus on the geographical distribution of electrical power and water resources, the administrative decision-making process, the inclusion of relevant stakeholders, the Cited by: “An estimated million people have likely been negatively impacted by the downstream impacts of large dams.

This is the main finding of a scientific study which was just published by a group of eminent global freshwater experts. The study documents the impacts which dams have had on some of the world’s most productive ecosystems, and recommend measures which can prevent the further loss.

One of the first problems with dams is the erosion of land. Dams hold back the sediment load normally found in a river flow, depriving the downstream of this. In order to make up for the sediments, the downstream water erodes its channels and banks.

This lowering. Dam construction reduces upstream flow velocities and extremes in flow, since releases from the dam often increase flow during low-flow periods, while storage in a reservoir ameliorates high flows during wet periods (Graf, ; Kondolf, ; Ward and Stanford, ).

The effects of dam construction on sediment transport are well documented. “leftover problems of reservoir resettlement” ("shuiku yimin yiliu wenti"), that is, the unsolved burden of social, economic, and environmental problems on the resettlers who had been displaced before the developmental resettlement policy was implemented.

The case studies of five large dams constructed in India presented in this volume examine in detail the policies that governed the rehabilitation of those people displaced during the process. Those affected were left to fend for themselves, gained no advantages from the project that had disrupted their lives, and often ended up as migrant labourers.

Introduction Dams have been a part of the economic development model of almost all nations of the world. At some stage of their development, most countries with water resources that can be economically exploited have built dams for energy, irrigation, and drinking water.

Hydropower provides a non-polluting source of energy that may be generated in increasing amounts for the growing needs of. This study is intended to investigate the key issues facing resettlement practice based on experiences from households displaced by railway corridor construction in Dukem area, central Ethiopia.
