Dodgy deal: Lower Sesan 2 dam project

Located on the Sesan River, just below the confluence of the Srepok River in Cambodia's Stung Treng Province Province, the large 420MW, $816 million Lower Sesan 2 hydropower dam will block two of the largest rivers in the Mekong River Basin, the Sesan and Srepok Rivers, forcing thousands of people to relocate. The Lower Sesan 2 dam will also severely diminish the fish stocks in the region, as well as others throughout the Mekong River Basin, near the Tonle Sap Lake in Central Cambodia, and the Mekong Delta in Vietnam.
