There are more than 3,000 rivers in Vietnam, provide resources to feed millions of people and bring livelihoods to hundreds of communities. When the rivers change, fishermen and farmers are the first to be affected. By September 2013, more than 800 hydropower projects were planned, more than 250 hydropower projects operated, and more than 200 hydropower projects under construction. By 2013, due to only 21 hydropower projects in 12 provinces, more than 300,000 people were displaced and resettled. How are their lives now…?

This film included videos from field trips (2013-2015) to resettlement and downstream areas of Sesan 3, Plei Krong, Yaly, Serepok, and Ho Ho hydropower dams by PanNature.
