Daily Overview
Three Gorges Dam, which spans the Yangtze River in central China, was constructed between 1994 and 2012 to produce electricity and increase river shipping capacity. Since opening, it has been the world’s largest power station in terms of installed capacity with 22,500 megawatts. Its construction also caused a massive relocation upstream — 1.24 million people were forced to move and 13 cities, 140 towns, and 1350 villages were at least partially flooded.
