Development or Destruction? The Human Rights Impacts of Hydropower Development on Villagers in Southeast Myanmar

ຈັດພິມໂດຍ: Open Development Myanmar

Myanmar needs to acknowledge and address a number of salient concerns if it going to use hydropower to meet its future electricity needs. Most of Myanmar’s abundant hydropower resources are located in ethnic areas, particularly Kayin, Kayah, Kachin, and Shan States, all of which are sites of ongoing ethnic conflicts and armed tension. In many cases, development of large dams in ethnic areas has resulted in conflict, severe social and environmental impacts for local communities and human rights violations. The overwhelming majority (42 of 50) of large hydropower projects planned in Myanmar in recent years have been situated in ethnic areas. With many more projects slated for development in these areas, this report highlights how hydropower projects impact ethnic communities in Southeast Myanmar.
