Three reasons

    The controversial Golden Waterway's Three Gorges Project (TGP) has been proposed for three reasons:

  • to produce more efficient hydroelectric power (power generation) for the country
  • flood control
  • waterway navigation purposes (Ryder, 1990).

It will be built on the Yangtze River.
