A Civil Society Manifesto to Support Real Climate Solutions 

In less than a week, the world’s nations will converge in Paris for the COP21. We may finally see much-needed action on the climate crisis. At the same time,we need to avoid false solutions

Tell decision-makers that large hydro is not a solution to the climate crisis

Though large hydropower projects are often presented as a "clean and green" source of energy, nothing could be further from the truth.

Big dams often spell disaster for the environment. They stop rivers from acting as carbon sinks, and they destroy the critical ecosystems that climate policies are supposed to protect. And they make countries more vulnerable to climate change with the increased risk of intense floods and droughts. 

But the craziest thing? Large dams are responsible for as many greenhouse gas emissions as the global aviation industry. There’s nothing green about that.

We cannot dam our way out of climate change. Large hydro is an outdated 20th century technology that could crowd out better solutions.

Next week, a global coalition of civil society groups will launch “Ten Reasons Why Climate Initiatives Should Not Include Large Hydropower Projects.” We are letting decision-makers know that large hydro should play no role in climate change initiatives.Sincerely,

Peter Bosshard
Interim Executive Director
