Brazil Announces End to Amazon Mega-Dam Building Policy 4.1.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Brazil's government this week announced a major shift away from its policy of building mega-dams in the Brazilian Amazon -- a strategy born during the country's military dictatorship and vigorously carried forward down to the present day. While environmentalists and Indigenous groups will likely celebrate, experts warn that many threats remain.
