THAYER SCUDDER, the world’s leading authority on the impact of dams on poor people, has changed his mind about dams.
A frequent consultant on large dam projects, Mr. Scudder held out hope through most of his 58-year career that the poverty relief delivered by a properly constructed and managed dam would outweigh the social and environmental damage it caused. Now, at age 84, he has concluded that large dams not only aren’t worth their cost, but that many currently under construction “will have disastrous environmental and socio-economic consequences,” as he wrote in a recent email.
Mr. Scudder, an emeritus anthropology professor at the California Institute of Technology, describes his disillusionment with dams as gradual. He was a dam proponent when he began his first research project in 1956, documenting the impact of forced resettlement on 57,000 Tonga people in the Gwembe Valley of present-day Zambia and Zimbabwe. Construction of the Kariba Dam, which relied on what was then the largest loan in the World Bank’s history, required the Tonga to move from their ancestral homes along the Zambezi River to infertile land downstream. Mr. Scudder has been tracking their disintegration ever since.
Once cohesive and self-sufficient, the Tonga are troubled by intermittent hunger, rampant alcoholism and astronomical unemployment. Desperate for income, some have resorted to illegal drug cultivation and smuggling, elephant poaching, pimping and prostitution. Villagers still lack electricity.
Mr. Scudder’s most recent stint as a consultant, on the Nam Theun 2 Dam in Laos, delivered his final disappointment. He and two fellow advisers supported the project because it required the dam’s funders to carry out programs that would leave people displaced by the dam in better shape than before the project started. But the dam was finished in 2010, and the programs’ goals remain unmet. Meanwhile, the dam’s three owners are considering turning over all responsibilities to the Laotian government — “too soon,” Mr. Scudder said in an interview. “The government wants to build 60 dams over the next 20 or 30 years, and at the moment it doesn’t have the capacity to deal with environmental and social impacts for any single one of them.
“Nam Theun 2 confirmed my longstanding suspicion that the task of building a large dam is just too complex and too damaging to priceless natural resources,” he said. He now thinks his most significant accomplishment was not improving a dam, but stopping one: He led a 1992 study that helped prevent construction of a dam that would have harmed Botswana’s Okavango Delta, one of the world’s last great wetlands.

On the results achieved in this area told scholars and experts at the panel discussion organized in Tashkent timed to the World Day to Combat Desertification.
With the support of international organizations the country carries out a number of large-scale projects to combat desertification and climate warming. In their implementation experts and farmers rely on centuries-old experience of the Uzbek people in agriculture while neighboring the great deserts - Qizilqum and Qoraqum.
In 1995, Uzbekistan was the first among the CIS countries ratified the UN Convention to Combat Desertification, and actively participates in various international programs for its implementation.
Every year hundreds of new industrial, social and cultural objects appear in cities of Uzbekistan created using the most advanced building materials and technologies. It is very important that in designing of them a lot of attention is given to new standards of urban planning and construction.
Leading role in this process to date occupy domestic carriers. SRJSC ‘Uzbekistan Railways’ and NAC ‘Uzbekistan Airways’ consistently implement programs on creating comfortable infrastructure available at railroad stations and air terminals in our country. For example, today all air terminals have all-round conditions for passengers with disabilities, including ramps for passengers with disabilities, appropriate tools and equipment in the premises of the terminals. At the same time, passengers with disabilities could free of charge carry their wheelchairs and other assistive devices, as well as service-dogs. The same situation in the railroad stations as well.
The above combination constitutes a slogan highlighting the major idea of the EcologicalMovement of Uzbekistan that stands for consolidation of society’s efforts in addressing the underlying environmental challenges facing the country.
A year ago, the founding conference was held to establish this major public organization whose emergence was determined by the times as well as the willingness of the public to address contemporary environmental issues. The movement has united both ecological nongovernmental organizations and scientists, specialists in the sphere of protection of environment and healthcare of the population. Nowadays, there are representatives of different occupations and age groups among the movement’s activists who understand and support the essence of these words which have an important common significance “Healthy Environment – Healthy Human”.
