Chinese Hydropower Development in Africa and Asia

Chinese Hydropower Development in Africa and Asia: Challenges and Opportunities for Sustainable Global Dam-Building / ed. by Dr Giuseppina Siciliano and Dr Frauke Urban (SOAS, University of London). Routledge, 2018, 174 p.


Chinese Hydropower Development in Africa and Asia explores the governance and socio-economic implications of large Chinese dams’ development in low and middle income countries in Asia and Africa, asking how these big infrastructure projects can promote sustainable local and national development. Chinese overseas investment and hydropower development are topics of increasing interest to scholars from across the development, environment, politics and economics disciplines. This is the first book to bring together studies from Africa and Asia to draw out the general challenges and opportunities of Chinese overseas dams’ investments for promoting development.
