The Game of Engineering Ethics in Gully Water Conservancy Reconstruction Project of Xishuangbanna International Tourism Resort

With the rapid development of our country's economy and urban construction, the number of new construction and reconstruction projects of water conservancy projects has gradually increased. In the construction process, there are also engineering ethics problems that cannot be ignored, among which safety, responsibility, ecological environment and benefit compensation and other related problems are relatively significant. Based on the basic principles of engineering ethics and aiming at the practical problems in the gully water conservancy reconstruction project of Xishuangbanna International Tourism Resort, this paper makes a comparative study of pros and cons, and points out that the concepts of “deontology”, “contract theory” and “virtue theory” should be adhered to in the water conservancy project. While focusing on maximizing social benefits, it is more important to ensure “the greatest happiness of the greatest number of people”. And put forward the corresponding measures to solve the problem. At the same time, because there are many special situations in the types and actual construction of water conservancy renovation projects, this study needs to further analyze multiple practice cases and summarize the common content of such projects, so as to effectively guide the construction of similar water conservancy renovation projects and provide references for future research on ethical issues of water conservancy renovation projects, so that water conservancy projects can benefit mankind more effectively.
