Son La Dam

Villagers from Chiang Yen village move their houses piece by piece to make way for the Son La Dam.

internationalrivers – The Son La Hydropower Project is the largest and most complex dam project ever built in Vietnam. The project will displace more than 91,000 ethnic minority people, requiring the largest resettlement in Vietnam’s history.

One of the major concerns is a shortage of arable land for resettling the tens of thousands of displaced people. Continue reading “Son La Dam”
