3. Summary of findings
The reasons for success and failure of the case study projects and evaluations
of environmental aspects, are summarized in Tables 13 and 14 respectively.
Table 13. Reasons for success and failure
for 7 case study projects
Table 14. A qualitative evaluation/assessment
of environmental aspects of 7 case study projects
||Reason for success/failure
||River erosion is not serious; embankments never
failed; pumped drainage and irrigation components present; accepted by
||Embankments designed to be overtopped during
monsoon flooding; does not extensively interact with river regimen; accepted
||Prevention of rainfall flooding by providing
drainage facility; embankment does not interact with river, benefits of
||Embankments cut by the impacted people outside
the project area; substantial fisheries loss.
||River erosion is serious; embankments breached;
significant loss of fisheries.
||Siltation of boundary rivers due to project
impact; water logging as the drainage is prevented due to siltation of
||Project abandoned at the initial construction
stage due to resistance of people who had environmental concerns.
