Abstract

The creation of drawdown areas in dam projects illustrates the secondary consequences of development projects. These secondary consequences can have major potential benefits for local and regional development. Management plans for drawdown areas, however, are usually absent from dam project planning. Even in cases where management of the drawdown area is planned, implementation of the plan may be impeded by: project managers' decisions; the perspectives of planners and consultants which overlook the economic importance of drawdown cultivation; and failure of officials to recognize the sound ecological knowledge and practices of the local people in utilizing the drawdown habitat.
