Paradise lost: dams and irrigation

, : Paradise lost: dams and irrigation. Silenced rivers: the ecology and politics of large dams: 164-187

The environmental impacts of dams and irrigation are reviewed. The different types of irrigation are outlined and the impact of irrigation on soils is discussed with reference to salinization and waterlogging. The key to reducing salinization is good drainage. The role of canal irrigation in the 'green revolution' in Asia is examined.
