What social problems has the 3 Gorges dam caused?
Many problems accompany the project from the proposal to the finish. The early disputes stressed on the economic and technical factors. It was generally accepted that these two factors could not support the construction of the project and the problem of migration was hard to be settled. After 1980s, by the progress of reform and opening up policy, the problems over the project have largely covered politics, economy, environment, migration, tourism and the protection of the cultural relics.

The Three Gorges Dam is located in Sandoupng in China. It is a hydroelectric dam that works on the Yanghtze River and is the world's most powerful power station.
Three Gorges Dam is 101m high, 2309m long and 115m thick at its basin
the number of land slides and death, many people move to get away an estimated 3million or higher
The Three Gorges Dam Was Constructed (built) To Stop The Flodding..Also For Hydroelectricity, But On The Other Hand This Has Cause Alot Of Disruption To Many Lives.
The three Gorges Dam was built so that flooding stops and it also provides power and there is endless water supply. …
The problem is its causing landslides, endangering ecosystems, and is stopping water from flowing to the people downstream.
The pathways worn into the stone above the river where coolies used to pull boats upriver against strong currents have disappeared forever. Markings in many places recording t…he river depth in many places. The river rose up to 30 meters or more when in flood stage. The hundreds of steps climbing from the river to cities perched above the flood stage are submerged. Many other artifacts being dug on archiological sites were abandoned. Many cities and farmland were relocated to "modern" cement replacement cities and less fertile mountain farm sites as the originals were lost. An ancient and unique way of life along the river higwy has been forever altered. And three of the most beautiful wild river gorges in the world were submerged forever. It is almost as if the Grand Canyon were damed and filled with a giant lake.
it will affect the global warming very badly, it will drown villages, kill people and affect all the atmosphere around it.
The purpose of the 3 gorges dams are to establish a modern way of living, or atleast to help. the 3 gorges dam was an idea that was invented in 1909 and was approved on 1992 a…nd finished 2009.
Most likely , Ehh , floods. (:
Yes. It was completed on October 30, 2008.
Yes the 3 gorges dam should have been built: Here's why Because it stops the water from flowing on to our houses. The purpose of the dam being built was to create electricity …and water storage for a population that is migrating from a sustainable existence to a more western urban culture. As more Chinese give up farming they are moving into urban cities. Those cities need more electricity and water than the same number of people living a rural existence. They will also require more imported food since fewer people are farming.
Well the fact that the dam has or can help people in that they are not getting flooded anymore.
yes because they make billions of dollars in revenue for the economy
