News Doing Dams Right

In the wake of an acrimonious debate on big dams, the Bank brokered a global agreement on financing as well as on the sharing of the rewards and risks of the controversial Nam Theun 2 Hydroelectric Project in Lao People’s Democratic Republic.

This book, which is subtitled “The Challenges of Lao Nam Theun 2,” describes how skillful management, effective communications, and technical expertise helped to reach consensus and nurtured private-public partnerships, engaged stakeholders, strengthened the country's development framework and poverty reduction efforts, and addressed the project's environmental and social impacts.
