The Lower Sesan II dam. Cambodia 2017.
The Lower Sesan II dam is a joint venture between Chinese SOE Hydrolancang and Cambodia's Royal group. The 400 MW dam forms an initial part of China's OBOR international development initiative and is being constructed near the confluence of the Sesan and Srepok rivers in Stung Treng Povine, Camoboida. Approximately five thousand people, many of whom are ethnic minorities will be forcibly evicted to make way for the dam’s 33,560 hectare reservoir. The project will also forever alter the livelihoods and cultures of tens of thousands of people living along the Sesan and Srepok rivers, whose lives and traditions are closely linked to the river system and its rich natural resources.
