Theun-Hinboun: Expanding Failure
The Theun-Hinboun Expansion Project â€“ a dam and diversion project under construction in Central Laos â€“ violates the Equator Principles and Lao law, according to this report. It documents how Lao villagers are being sold down the river in a hydro deal that will displace thousands of people from their homes and land, and deprive thousands more of access to fertile rice fields, riverbank vegetable gardens, grazing lands, forests and fisheries. The dam project undermines local communitiesâ€™ rights to access food.
