Anti-dam lobby

The report of the World Commission on Dams is being presented as if it were the considered opinion of a panel of experts. In fact, it is nothing of that kind. The commission came into existence through the effort of an anti-dam lobby funded by countries which have developed their natural resources.

The Government of India not only declined to make a presentation before the commission but also denied it permission to hold hearings in India. The statement that reservoirs have made only a small contribution to food production in India is absurd on the face of it and against all earlier findings including that of World Bank’s India —Irrigation Sector Review Main Report and Supplementary Analysis.
