Resettlement measures and planned change within dam projects in the third world. The example of the founding of new settlements beside the Volta dam in Ghana



Resettlement measures and planned change within dam projects in the third world. The example of the founding of new settlements beside the Volta dam in Ghana



Frankfurter Wirtschafts und Sozialgeographische Schriften, Wirtschaftsgeographie der Johann Wolfgang Goethe Universitat (39): 398



The development of water resources for hydroelectric supplies and irrigation frequently requires the creation of large artificial lakes and the displacement and resettlement of large populations. The study investigates the situation in 52 new settlements some 15 years after they were founded as part of the Volta dam project to help accommodate and employ the 78 146 persons displaced from 700 settlements by the flooding of relatively fertile land which it involved.
