In the Brazilian state of ParĂ¡, an army of 25,000 workers is building the world's third largest hydroelectric plant, a controversial construction project -because of the dam's low efficiency, its environmental impact and its effects on the Indians, riverbank-dwellers and the inhabitants of Altamira. Folha's reporters spent three weeks in the region to put together the most comprehensive coverage -with 24 videos, 55 pictures, and 18 infographics- of the country's largest infrastructural investment. The pros and cons of the dam are presented in five chapters: Construction; Environment; Society; Indigenous Peoples; History.
