Summary: “What happens to development projects when international capital and experts have left the building? In 1964, construction began on the Upper Krishna Project, an irrigation works in the Indian state of Karnataka; fifty years and several highly-publicized rounds of World Bank funding later, the project’s main dam collapsed, sending six billion cubic feet of water rushing through in its wake. Examining the rise and demise of the Upper Krishna Project provides insight into the dynamics of deindustrialization and infrastructural decay across the former colonial periphery.”
