    Why did the Project have to relocate some communities in Lao PDR? Is it because of the pollution problem?

    The relocation has nothing to do with pollution problem. The main reason for the relocation is because these communities are situated on the construction area of the power plant and the mine sites, or on the concession area. The relocation was already completed in July 2012. Apart from being given compensation by the Hongsa Power Plant project according to the guidelines set by the Government of Lao, each household within these communities was allocated a new house and a 2-hectare (around 18 Rai) agricultural land plot by the Government of Lao. In addition, at least one person per household has a secured job as a project employee throughout the project’s concession period.
