NT 2 Campaign Packet

15 January 1998

The Nam Theun 2 (NT2) Hydroelectric Project is the largest prospective hydropower project in Lao PDR. Set to inundate 450 square kilometres, displace 5000 people and affect up to 40,000 people, this US$1.5 billion dam is awaiting World Bank approval of guarantees and other assistance. A new Campaign Packet from the International Rivers Network contains 180 pages of documents, correspondence, and articles on this highly complex and controversial project which the World Bank will decide this year whether to support.

Order from: Yvonne Cuellar, IRN: US$15 plus $3 for US 1st class mail and $10 for International Air.
