  • CASE STUDY (20Marks)
  • The Three Gorges Dam in China is one of
    the world's largest hydroelectric dams, providing
    energy for millions of people. However, the dam's
    construction forever altered the Yangtze River
    ecosystem and the lives of local residents. In
    this case study, students explore the complex and
    interrelated issues associated with large eco
    system maltering projects like dams and develop a
    persuasive argument for or against their
    construction. Do the benefits from a dam outweigh
    the ecological, economic, and social costs?
    Answering this question is difficult, since the
    benefits and costs are not directly comparable.

  • How do you compare the loss of endemic
    species to the increased safety from flooding?
    How do you weigh a relocated family's social and
    economic costs in comparison to the benefits of a
    sustainable and renewable energy source? Although
    this case was developed for an undergraduate
    course in fisheries management, it would also be
    directly applicable to courses in ecology,
    environmental engineering, or global issues.

  • Answer the following question.
