- Impact Area
Now ask yourself: of these people, who will be able to receive and read a text alert about flooding about to hit their area? If there is a prolonged drought impacting agriculture, whose livelihood and food security will be negatively impacted?
What if a hydropower dam is going to be built upstream from the community in an area used by farmers and pastoralists from a local ethnic minority? The dam will greatly impact watersheds and flooding patterns, including on agricultural land, but it will provide much-needed energy to the area. Who will benefit, who will struggle, and who will have an influential say in where and whether the dam is built?
