In Defense of Life and the Xingu River

Sunday, June 3, 2007
We wish to express our concern about the possible construction of a complex of hydroelectric dams on the Xingu River. If these large dams are constructed on the Volta Grande (Big Bend) of the Xingu River they will affect indigenous peoples, agricultural communities, the forest and its biodiversity, and would harm life in the Xingu basin. We are totally opposed to Belo Monte [one of the large dams] because the Xingu River is our life. The death of the river would threaten our lives, our future, our people, and our children and grandchildren. Any interference with the Xingu will cause the extinc

Joint Statement l One year after Xe Pian-Xe Namnoy dam collapse, civil society from Korea and the Mekong call for immediate accountability and redress

Tuesday, July 23, 2019
One year ago today, on 23 July 2018, Saddle Dam of the Xe-Pian Xe-Namnoy hydropower project in Attapeu Province, Laos, collapsed. The dam collapse unleashed a disaster with transboundary implications in which dozens of people were killed and thousands of residents were driven from their homes. We offer our thoughts and prayers for the 49 Lao residents who lost their lives and 22 others who remain missing. We also offer our deepest condolences to the many Lao and Cambodian residents who lost so much in this accident. Although a year has passed, the tragedy of the dam collapse continues. Support

Statement: It’s Time for the African Development Bank to Pull the Plug on the Inga 3 Dam

Tuesday, June 18, 2019
On the occasion of the visit of African Development Bank (AfDB) President Akinwumi Adesina to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), International Rivers calls on the institution to withdraw its support from the Inga 3 Dam. President Adesina was scheduled to visit the Inga site on Wednesday, June 19 as part of his four-day visit to the country. In 2013, the AfDB approved a $68 million grant to provide technical assistance to get Inga 3 off the ground. Years on, the project is no closer to coming to fruition, and most of the AfDB’s funds remain unspent. The World Bank had agreed to contribut
