Ans. Three problems that  arise due to construction of big dams:

(i) Social problems. Due to the construction of high rise dams, a large number of human settlements  are submerged in the water of large reservoir  formed  by the dam  and many people are rendered  homeless.

(ii)  Environmental  problems.  The  construction   of  high   rise  dams   on   the   rivers contributes  to deforestation  and loss of biodiversity.

(iii)  Economic  problems. Some  people  believe that  the construction  'of high-rise  dams involve  the spending  of huge amounts of public money  without  the .generation of proportionate benefits. Suggestions for these problems. All the people who are displaced from the dam site should be given adequate  compensation by the Government  for rehabilitation  so as to start their life afresh
