Environmental NGO International Rivers has released a comprehensive, easy-to-understand database on how dams affect rivers
International Rivers, the US-based environmental NGO has just launched The State of the World’s Rivers. This is a first-of-its-kind interactive online database that aims to illustrate the role dams have played in impoverishing the health of the world’s rivers. The database illustrates how decades of dam-building have put many of the world’s major river basins on life support, degrading biodiversity and water quality.
The State of the World’s Rivers contains information on rivers across Southeast Asia. The database can be accessed here
