Created by researchers and students, this database is intended to help policymakers, researchers, community members and others find information on a selection of dams from around the world. Our aim is to better understand how hydropower dams affect the individuals and communities who live near them, with a particular focus on population displacement and resettlement. Currently, more than 500 dams from most of the world’s major river systems are included in the database, with information drawn from more than 700 published references.
