Nu River Under Threat

The Nu River, known also as the Salween, starts at the Tibetan Plateau and flows through southwest China, Burma and Thailand, before emptying into the Andaman Sea. It is home to one of China's most biodiverse regions, a World Heritage Site, and provides sustenance for thousands of people downstream. Situated in a highly seismic region, the Nu River Valley has come under the additional threat of plans for a cascade of large dams on the mainstream.

Our film, Double Threat on the Nu details the situation in the region.
