Construction of dams can affect poor people by causing displacement, disruption to their livelihoods, and decreased access to water. Dams also often divert water away from traditional users and redirect it for industrial, agricultural, or energy-generating uses, thus reducing the availability of water for locals.
The construction of dams can also lead to displacement of communities and reduce access to food sources and other resources.
