Letter to the President of Republic of Korea

Information disclosure and ensuring public participation in Thailand’s water scheme

Dear the President,

For the past five decades since Thailand’s first National Economic and Social Development Plan, a large number of Thai people have been suffered by the government’s water management. Many local communities were destroyed when dams and water infrastructure were built. Thailand is an agricultural country, which largely depends on water resources. Once the ecosystems and natural resources are devastated, it directly affects community’s livelihoods, fishery, agriculture, source of income, and food security. To date, chronic impacts of dams have not been solved, and became a long-term social problem.  more >>

Fish Plunder at Stake, Laos Announces Plans to Build Don Sahong Dam  3 Oct 2013

Bangkok, Thailand: On Monday, Laos notified the Mekong River Commission (MRC) and member countries of its intent to build its second Mekong mainstream project, the 260 MW Don Sahong Dam. As the Don Sahong Dam will block the only channel available for dry-season fish migrations on the Mekong River, the move places the world’s largest inland fishery at stake.

Through its letter of ‘prior notification’ provided to the MRC, Laos has side-stepped its responsibilities to submit the project to the MRC’s ‘prior consultation’ process, despite earlier statements made by the MRC Secretariat and its international donors that the project should undergo the consultation process to allow for regional decision-making. more>>
