Ugandan dam concerns

12 December 2000

Ugandan and international NGOs have written to the head of the IFC to raise concerns about its planned support for the Bujagali Falls dam. The letter argues that “the project is too flawed to go forward as planned, as it neither helps the majority of Ugandans, nor meets the guidelines and recommendations of the newly released report of the World Commission on Dams”. The letter requests a thorough needs assessment, the release of the Power Purchase Agreement and a full and fair consideration of alternative energy options.
