A Guide to China's Overseas Dam Industry

From The Official Blog of Amb. David H. Shinn Mon Nov 26 2012, 12:54:00

International Rivers, an organization that works to stop the construction of destructive dams, published in October 2012 The New Great Walls: A Guide to China's Overseas Dam Industry. As of mid-2012, it documented 308 dam projects in 70 countries in which Chinese companies or financiers are involved. Africa accounts for 85 of these projects or 28 percent of all Chinese overseas dams in the world.

The dams in Africa include Benin/Togo (Adjarala Dam), Botswana (Dikgatlhong Dam), Cameroon (Mekin Hydroelectric Project), DRC (Imboulou Dam), Mali (Felou Hydropower Project), Gabon (Grand Poubara Power Station), Ghana (Bui Dam), Ethiopia (Gibe III Hydroelectricity Project), Sudan (Merowe Dam and Kajbar Dam), and Zambia (Itezhi-Tezhi Hydropower Project).
