China Proposes Fewer Dams in Power Project to Aid Environment – Jim Yardley

From the New York Times:

A government environmental review has recommended reducing the number of dams included in a controversial hydropower proposal on the Nu River in southwestern China in order to limit environmental damage and decrease the number of people who would be resettled, a Hong Kong newspaper has reported.

The newspaper, Wen Wei Po, which has ties to the Communist Party, reported on Wednesday that the recommendation called for 4 dams instead the 13 in the original Nu proposal. The article, citing an unnamed source close to the governmental review, said fewer dams would still meet “the needs for economic development and environmental protection.”
