The World Commission on Dams’ recommendations have gained widespread acceptance in the five years since the WCD released its final report. This positive trend was impressively documented at “Taking the WCD Report to the next level“, an international conference to mark the fifth anniversary of the WCD report in November 2005 in Berlin, Germany, organized by International Rivers in cooperation with the Heinrich Böll Foundation. More than 80 decision-makers, activists, development experts and private sector participants gathered to discuss the progress in the large dams debate in the past five years, and to identify further actions.
