Business & Human Rights Resource Centre letters to investors

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre

In July 2022, the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre released Drying up: Tracking the environmental and human rights harms caused by hydropower in the Caucasus and Central Asia report, which tracked publicly reported allegations of environmental and human rights abuses linked to hydropower plants (HPPs) in Armenia, Georgia, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. The data in the report demonstrated that local communities are facing major risks amid increasing demand for hydropower.

After the release of the report, the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre reached out to the investors involved in hydropower projects included in the report for their comment on environmental and human rights allegations and steps to remediate alleged harms.

On this page you can find the letters we sent to each of the investors.
