When the three gorges dam was built how many people had to move, and were they compensated at all?

    The Three Gorges Dam sets the record for the largest hydroelectric dam in history. Unfortunately, it also sets record for the most people displace (about 1.2 million), and the most cities, towns and villages flooded (13, 140, 1,350 respectively). The Chinese government has promised the displaced people monetary compensation along with new homes and new livelihoods. However, the compensation process has been highly controversial and there have been numerous complaints that most of the money has been siphoned off by corrupt bureaucrats. Official accounts support these claims that millions of dollars have been embezzled.
