Dams As Aid Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Dams as Aid" is a critical analysis of the funding and building of dams in the developing world. Drawing on the experiences in the Nordic region, Usher explores the mechanisms through which international aid subsidizes dams to create new markets, and the environmental and political economy struggles therein. Case studies of dams in Chile, Tanzania, and Laos are explored in depth to provide a broad international comparative framework.

Book News Annotation:

Contains eleven contributions which provide a critical examination of dams, shedding light on the wider issues of the political economy of aid, the environmental debate, and the links between the North and the South. Focusing particularly on Nordic (Swedish and Norwegian) aid for hydro dams in the Developing World, the volume describes why dams are no longer built in the North; the mechanism through which Northern aid money subsidizes the dams industry to find new markets in the South; and the struggles and politics surrounding dam projects, concentrating on three Nordic-financed dam projects in Chile, Tanzania, and Laos.
