"Nepal hydropower project affected persons: Failure to uphold free, prior, informed consent", 24 February 2020

Indigenous communities affected by the Tanahu Hydropower Project in Nepal have filed complaints with independent watchdogs of the Asian Development Bank and the European Investment Bank — two co-financiers of the project — requesting an independent mediation process.

At least 32 affected families or landowners organized under the “Directly Inundation Affected Peoples Collective Rights Protection Committee” demanded ‘land for land’ and ‘house for house’ compensation; re-survey of land left out during the ‘Detailed Measurement Survey’ of the project, and free, prior and informed consent in the project process.
