In January 2007, after years of pressure from International Rivers, the Lao government and Asian Development Bank agreed to implement an Environmental Mitigation Implementation Plan for communities affected by the Nam Song and Nam Leuk dams. This letter to the Asian Development Bank outlines ongoing problems with water supply and fisheries compensation in villages affected by Nam Leuk and Nam Song, as discovered by a researcher who visited the area in March 2008. The letter makes recommendations to ensure that affected people receive fair compensation in a timely manner.
