Official Review of the Xayaburi Dam Reveals Project Flaws
United States, Mar 31 2011
A long-brewing regional debate over whether or not to build the proposed Xayaburi Dam on the Mekong River has hit boiling point.
While the project developer's Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) made false claims that fishery losses could be mitigated, the MRC's
review on the other hand minces no words. Its experts state that
transboundary impacts to fisheries will remain even if international
best practice is applied to dam design and operation, as "there is no
definitive solution to mitigate the lost fish production in the Xayaburi
Dam area." The review also dispels the myth that reservoir fisheries
may be an effective mitigation measure, by stating that there is a
"misunderstanding that damming the river to create a series of
run-of-the river reservoirs could increase the fishery yields."
