The Three Gorges Dam is the largest hydro-electric dam in the world. Yet questions abound over environmental and social issues, not to mention the logistic problems of moving ships up and down the river. An ingenious system of ship locks has gone towards solving that problem, echoing the techniques of Banaue farmers in the Philippines who mastered the art of managing water over two thousand years ago.
