Building of large dams is increasing rapidly after a lull in construction at the end of the last century. Global drivers of this growth include demand for low carbon energy and structural reform of energy markets and this report analyses these processes in more depth. It assesses the compulsory, donor driven and voluntary frameworks for ensuring sustainable environmental and social outcomes from large hydropower dams, their application to individual projects and makes recommendations to improve results on the ground.
