2012 • 2 years • Conservation & Sustainable Development

The Henry L. Stimson Center ("Stimson") will focus on drivers and impacts of uncoordinated hydropower development. Stimson will engage with high level decision-makers to present well-documented evidence that these planned dams threaten national food security, have serious socioeconomic impacts that may threaten domestic stability in some cases, and also result in inequitable transboundary impacts. We believe that framing the hydropower development issue as threat to regional cooperation and, potentially even regional stability will have more traction with decision-makers than conservation-based arguments.
