Brief narrative

Source:T he Age, Australia, CHINA is planning to move another 4 million people away from the controversial Three Gorges dam to prevent an environmental disaster, as the magnitude of problems with the world`s biggest hydroelectric project is revealed. The unprecedented relocation was approved last month by Beijing, but only made public yesterday as part of the planning strategy for Chongqing, which is west of the dam. The vice-mayor of Chongqing Municipality, Yu Yuanmu, said more than 4 million people living in hillsides along the dam`s 600-kilometre-long reservoir needed to be moved for the ecological safety of the area.
