4 Sardar Sarovar : the report of the Independent Review
Ottawa Published for the Independent Review By Resource Futures International 1992 0969632509 / 9780969632504 Soft Cover Very Good 
Chairman, Bradford Morse, deputy chairman, Thomas Berger ; senior advisors, environment, Donald Gamble, resettlement, Hugh Brody. Xxviii,363 pages, illustrations, map, pictorial wrappers, very good. "Sardar Sarovar is a dam planned on the Narmada River in northwest India. It is the centerpiece of a plan to bring irrigation to 1.8 million hectares, along 75,000 kilometers of canals, in what would be the largest such system in the world. The project is also destined to bring drinking water to 40 million people, and to generate electricity. But the Sardar Sarovar dam entails the displacement and resettlement of at least 100,000 people. A further 140,000 people could be impacted by the canals. In 1985 the World Bank agreed to lend a total of $450 million for these projects. This immense development and the World Bank's role in it have become the focus of heated controversy. ~ The work of the Review represents the first independent assessment of an internationally supported development project. No lending or aid institution has ever before accepted that its decisions and procedures be submitted to this kind of public scrutiny. This is the Independent Reviews final report."

They go on to examine the rise of industrialized cities and the consequent pollution stemming from them and warn that conservation is the key to self-sufficiency, which in turn is the key to man's own survival."
