|Date of publication:|| ||2015|
|Description/subject:|| ||"Throughout the Mekong region, large-scale development projects such
as hydropower dams, mines, conventional power plants, and mono-crop
plantations are displacing communities and limiting access to natural
resources. Several hydropower dams have already been built on the
Upper Mekong in China’s Yunnan Province, and the governments of
Cambodia, Laos and Thailand are planning eleven additional large dams
on the Mekong River’s mainstream. If completed, these dams would
not only destroy local ecosystems, but also reduce the ow of silt
throughout the Mekong River system, and block major sh migrations,
placing at risk over sixty million people who depend on the Mekong for
their food security and income.
It’s vital for citizens of all six nations who share the Mekong basin’s rich
resources to work together to promote greater accountability in
development planning. This is exactly what is happening among a new
generation of Mekong activists. Over the past nine years, alumni from
EarthRights International’s Mekong School representing communities
from the source to the mouth of the Mekong have been working together
to advocate for stronger human rights and environmental protection in
In sharing these reports from their communities, Mekong School Alumni
hope to inspire citizens throughout the Mekong region to consider the
social and environmental impacts of hydropower dams, mines, power
plants and other large development projects and to join together to
advocate for greater transparency and public participation in development
