Nam Theun 2 Trip Report and Project Update, February 2008

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

International Rivers' February 2008 Nam Theun 2 report, based on a recent site visit by International Rivers’ staff, shows that shortcomings and delays in programs to compensate villagers and restore their incomes have not been addressed. Furthermore, it is unclear if resettlement infrastructure for more than 6,200 villagers on the Nakai Plateau will be completed on time for reservoir filling to begin in June 2008.
