Rio Sabor / Mogadouro

The Platform SABOR LIVRE opposes construction of the Baixo Sabor dam<br />because:<br />1: The area of influence of the Baixo Sabor dam has unique ecological<br />value and is irreplaceable.<br />2: The environmental impacts of large dams are too high and irreversible<br />(e.g. destruction of ecosystems of great importance, extinction and<br />substantial reduction of migratory and resident fish, respectively,<br />contamination of water reserves, retention of sediments and nutrients,<br />etc.). Moreover, large dams have a very short life span (between 50 and 70<br />years) so their construction should be avoided at all cost.<br />3: It is urgent to define and implement a national energy plan that gives<br />priority to incentives for energy efficiency and renewable energies<br />4: Genuine adoption of the principles underlying the Kyoto Protocol demands<br />that a reduction of CO2 emissions in Portugal be obtained through<br />implementing a combination of cost-efficient and previously studied<br />measures within the industry, transport and housing sectors. Options such<br />as incentives for renewable energy, energy conservation, and expansion of<br />the electric grid could eliminate the need for construction of new large<br />dams.<br /><br />5: The ecological importance of the Sabor river valley amply justifies its<br />classification as a protected area of national and international interest.
