ABSTRACT:
On this blue planet, less than 2.5% of our water is fresh, less than 33% of fresh water is fluid, less than 1.7% of fluid water runs in streams. And we have been stopping even these. We dammed half our world’s rivers at unprecedented rates of one per hour, and at unprecedented scales of over 45 000 dams more than four storeys high.Natural resource extraction, urban renewal or development programs and infrastructure projects (such as dams) all require land, often in large quantity and one common consequence of such projects is the upheaval and displacement of communities. Development-induced displacement can be defined as the forcing of communities and individuals out of their homes, often also their homelands, for the purposes of economic development. At the international level, it is viewed as a violation of human rights.
