The court cases of the Symposium at international Water Day, 2001 presents a dialogue of dams and dikes. quite a few audio system thought of the advantages and disadvantages of dams, and there was discussion approximately why it's that individuals are opposed to dams in particular occasions, and the way such events should be resolved. suggestions are advised to such controversies. These complaints comprise the complete textual content of the presentations. they are going to be a useful resource for decision-makers and planners of destiny tasks. This paintings highlights the foreign nature of those very important hydraulic engineering strucures and either their expertise and social implications.
